see i've been trying to get at the heart

of the matter and seems that my thoughts are


but i think it's about forgiveness

even [when] you don't love [yourself].
- Indie Arie, "Heart of the Matter"

it's crazy how beautiful butterflies sacrifice

themselves on the altar of false hopes in men

who would be quicker to clip their wings than

participate in being free with them.

but everyone once in a while butterflies

realize that they must fly to their Sun and

that by this light the darkness all around

disappears and smoothes out

their blights and fears.

the beautiful butterfly realizes that she is beautiful just as she is..
