Author Carolyn Kelly’s New Book, “The Broken Butterfly,” is a Powerful Series of Poems That Will Help Encourage Readers to Persevere Through Whatever Challenge They Face

Canton, NC, September 27, 2023 –(– Carolyn Kelly, a retired insurance executive and loving mother of two who now works with military families as a hairdresser, has completed her new book, “The Broken Butterfly”: a collection of poems that reflect upon the struggles and challenges faced by the author throughout her life, as well as her views and opinions on the human condition and life itself.

Carolyn shares, “Many people are wondering why I call this the broken butterfly. You start out with two beautiful wings. You’re happy in life; it makes you sing! You are able to do everything. You start off as a caterpillar. You know yet of the flight uphill. The changes you’re about to go through is what’s going to make the beauty of you! Then all at once, you have these glorious wings. It makes you feel you can do anything! So you soar and fly and enjoy the blue sky. You changed from the caterpillar to the beautiful butterfly! You say to yourself, this is truly real, I’m so glad I made it up that hill! Then all of a sudden the wind blows oh so strong, you feel as though so much is wrong. You see the tear upon your wing, and all at once you don’t feel a thing. Tattered and torn, you feel so very worn. You say to yourself, where is that place, when so many smiles were on the face? You realize then you have been broken, so many words unsaid not spoken. I’ve lost this wing, this part of me, it’s very clear I cannot see. I will not let this get the best of me! I will fight this flight with all my might.

“I will make everything all right. I will work hard for better days. And trust that people will have better ways. For I am weak and not strong; maybe they will see they were wrong. I will mend this broken wing, for I know it will take everything. When I do, it’s up to you! I want so many to see! this clearly isn’t meant for me!”
