"The caterpillar thought it was over, then she emerged a beautiful butterfly."

A beautiful tragedy is before us
People struggle just to survive
In this world of an eye for an eye
We are becoming blind
We forget to love each other
And even ourselves
Because we forget silence is humanity
And darkness comes before light
It has become so easy to label people foe and fiend
But what about people needing to be seen?
Hatred and heartache are shown constantly
And we've come to believe that those different are bad
And escaping reality is the newest goal
We all need a reminder
Beauty can be found in the darkest of times
When our voices have been stolen
And claimed by those battled against
Pause for a moment
And let the truth sink in
We battle wars against our brothers
And quickly forget each other
There is a solution…
No need to do this
Learn to love thy neighbor
And expect no other favor

I was inspired by this quote: "There's beauty in everything-even silence and pain."
