| “THE CATERPILLAR AND THE BUTTERFLY PART 2"
The ugly caterpillar we all now know as war
Hurls its way into our lives, leaving us brokenhearted and sore
Creeps its way into the hearts of so many who are too blind
To see war’s not the answer to peace for all mankind
The beautiful butterfly will guide us if we want to see the light
Lead us to the world of rainbows if we open our eyes to what’s right
Its wings will carry us away from a world of pain and destruction
Healing everything the caterpillar demolished into a rapturous construction
The ugly caterpillar will wage war with the illustrious butterfly
For all it wants from us is misery until the day we die
The caterpillar wants the world to believe that peace cannot be obtained
Yearns for everyone’s lives to be consumed with disgust and disdain
Still the butterfly spreads its wings and urges us to follow our heart
Sends the signal to us all that warring is not a start
The butterfly tells us that to achieve the peace and harmony we seek
Is by laying down our guns and becoming stronger and not so meek
But the ugly caterpillar yearns for nothing more than war and death
Is hell bent and determined to put our faith to the test
The caterpillar’s loathing is spread like a disease
Doesn’t want the world to know of everlasting peace
The butterfly spreads love and contentment to anyone wanting it badly enough
Prompts mankind to keep the faith when the going gets tough
Upon its beauteous wings is where the world will find faith
Where unhappiness and useless warring will be forever erased
