The Monarch

As quickly as I come to exist,
I will cease to exist.

The world remains forever large and wondrous.

And I was a child mere days ago.
The flowers held a virgin sweetness I have never met again.

But now,
Now I must go.

My children must stay.

It is a shame that we will remain strangers to eachother.
Our aquaintance only in their existence.

My only heirloom to them is the rest of my journey.

The journey we make as a species is much like the monarch's. It cannot be completed by a single generation.
