Butterfly - Freedom





Love wounds not freedom

Wish I remained as
caterpillar, because at
times beauty is bane!

εїз

What are my wings for
when my freedom is broken?
Trapped butterfly sobs

εїз

Lock beauty with eyes,
hurt not by grasping with hands;
Love wounds not freedom


A cage is still a cage, even if it is made of gold - Unknown
