Looking at a butterfly to show us how to get lost… #SchwervonPoetry #SchwervonLive


(Thanks for the video Brenton)

A butterfly doesn’t ask permission to open up her wings.
And a butterfly never loses it
until the very end.
There is alway something to discover there.
Here, we find something to lose.
If power is knowing where you’re going
Then arriving to your destination is getting lost again.

I’m not talking about abuse.
Abuse is stale.
It happens.
Abuse is a camera at a traffic light.

There is always a reward for forgiveness.
There are donuts in the morning.
There is light through a broken window.
Your children will love you if you love them and help them.
There will always be pain.
We do not fear pain.
We are learning every day, every second, and that is the best way to live.
That is the life.

Sometimes
I am a butterfly walking
And your words help me to get on.
I know these things that no one else can know.
I see these things that no one else can see.
It’s all a just tools for healing and helping
And healing
and helping some more.
