Beautiful traveler of whimsical dreams Chained to nostalgic times Afraid to expand your wings You were awakened among the valley of fears You are gnawed in this aberrant world by insatiable beings Who in their blindness pretend to hold the banner of life Furiously they suck the decency of those who crave to look past Beautiful madness you carry in your cocoon Mad butterfly who covets to see the light in every being Do you not realize you will get burned? They will try to burn you because of your heart A heart full of love which you intend to offer Oh, you poor demented creature You seek worlds of illusions lost long ago You seek to bring light to hardened souls Fly magical creature before they condemn you Fly towards the lands of milk, honey and light Fly...save yourself But yo will not, will you? You poor magnificent creature You want to submerge yourself In that which has brought you "happiness" Such a small beautiful world Yet darkness surrounds it Dive then, dive...dive into the sea of peace Let others breathe for the first time At the look of your noble gait Fly beautiful creature with the conviction of your being In the light of your essence Your wings are sweet caresses Which for centuries should have been delivered Yet dark forces try to kill the hope you bring They bring madness to your world Like a warrior you struggle, Yet surrender you do not Kisses full of furor you bring to us Loving, pampering, sweetest touch All delivered with a loving smile Your eyes hold the frank look of a beautiful sunrise All gifts to the ones who love you Fly like the enigmatic soul you are Let your light finally shine! -Sofia E. Falcone- Dedicated to those who endured so much hurt in life yet despise their "fractured" self, choose to keep going, rebuilding themselves into the person they know they can be; full of the bravery they wish others would have had to stop the atrocities from ever taking place.
