Butterflies

A child captured a butterfly
The child is hurt
When a captured butterfly dies
But an adult is satisfied
By simply watching a butterfly
Flutter in the sky
A place it must be
A place it must stay
Fluttering in the sky

Love can be very secure
But security can be deadly

We've advanced in technology
But fallen far behind in Lovology

We have to learn to love one another
Without capturing each other

We don't have to have each other
but we need to love one another
