the butterfly effect

You’ve heard
how a butterfly flapping 
it’s wings can change
the course of fate,

It never seems like it,
but I live like a butterfly too.
And i forget.

I float through this life,
flapping my wings
without an ounce of regret.
And i forget.

It’s a liberating way to live.
But it’s possible…  it could be selfish too.

The butterflies, they flutter
and you watch their precious, gentle wings
with admiration.
Pull up the corners of your mouth,
exclaim at their beauty.

You forget.

They might feel liberated.
but it’s possible… they could be lonely, too.
