Butterflies fly....

With ever flap of their wings
A lie is told

With every flap of their wings
A baby is born

With every flap of their wings
A person dies

With every flap of their wings
Someone becomes ill

With every flap of their wings
A heart is broken

With every flap of their wings
A family is torn apart

With every flap of their wings
A child learns that he is not enough to keep his parents together

With every flap of their wings
A child becomes an orphan

With every flap of their wings
Tears escape from someone’s eyes

With every flap of their wings
Someone smiles

With every flap of their wings
Butterflies soar higher into the sky.
