Londiwe, Seriously, what you've written is beautiful, and I'd like you to add another stanza or two to make it more meaningful. Of course, you can do it. And then, let me know. OK? Cheers. Subroto

You don't write about the butterflies that's so beautiful And I can't see a relation between the writer and the butterflies but still it's good even it don't look like a poem, ^_^

Made me think of polluted water. We pollute it and wonder why people die from drinking the water. ACID-RAIN

I agree with Lindsey, but there's a lot of wisdom in the statement!
