Title: The butterfly's wing

by Rose from London | in writing, poetry

Life, love, the world as we know it;
Each a fragile, fantastic beautiful thing.
The natural balance of the universe
But a delicate butterfly's wing
In the harsh winter
Of death and disease
Earth shattering pain and fear
Beauty spoilt by one act -
Changing the world
Breaking dreams
Poisoning the planet

But still there is hope.
The butterfly's wing.
The whiteness
The purity
The future

I was watching the news about all the stuff with China and Tibet, all the wars, poverty, etc and I thought 'God what are we doing to the planet, to each other?' And after thinking about it a bit more I decided to write this.
