In the end it'll be okay, if it's not okay then it's not the end.


All the wolf wanted - so the wolf followed, there was the butterfly.
It was beautiful, one of a kind.
Drawn in, the wolf stepped closer,
but the butterfly flew away.
Days went by, again and again.
Every time the wolf stepped too close,
the butterfly went high enough - to the tree tops.
Months went by, the wolf still came.
The butterfly still left, but the wolf was unrelenting.
A year went by; the wolf grew tired,
and laid down underneath the shade of a tree.
...And the butterfly gently touched down upon the wolf's nose.

Rather simple really, sometimes you just got to go with the flow of things, and let it (whatever it is) come to you.
