It felt like my insides were oozing out through all my pores,
as my tears spilled uncontrollably down my cheeks.
Could my heart break any more than into a million, tiny pieces?
I drown in sorrow.
What madness this that another mother’s offspring should savagely gun down my own?
Is there no safe haven for the butterfly, newly emerged from its cocoon?
What price heaven, that my innocent should die?
As for me…
I will glue my brokenness back together again.
I will live happily…as best I know how.
Until my eyes light once more…
on my beloved butterfly.
