Amazed By Its Wings, We Have Instead Crushed It To Death, - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

sometimes our frail human nature
makes an error,
like how we caught a butterfly in our
hands and with so much
love for beauty, amazed by its
wings, we have instead crushed
it to death, but as this is just
a matter of butterfly and hand,
we disregard guilt and consider
this as just an ordinary mistake that
we often as children do, but

there is an error which burns
humanity, like
this man who just made the
guilty free, and the innocent suffer
for twenty years in jail,

like one who made the wrong press,
and instead of saving the kid,
exploded the whole building wasting
ten lives of a cat,

sometimes one simply has to bear
with what is there already,
and this is the legend of the story
how silence as a princess
lives forever in the gallows of
the castle of abandon
