For a while

Once a butterfly left his kingdom to come and talk to me

He took a human look and made himself comfortable on my shoulder,

He even brought with him his warm cup of tea

And started sipping from it every time slower and slower

 

For a moment I thought I was dreaming

But everything around me didn’t seem surreal

The green grass, the wild flower, the birds singing

The calm water from the river nearby, all that could not be a dream

 

There he sat, patiently, waiting for me to come back to myself

And when he saw that my chicks turned red again

Began to talk and sounded like the angels from my dreams

And lovely patted me on my head for a while …

Like a shell

We all build walls around us to protect ourselves from the pain and the hate which has overtaken this beautiful world. We build heavy, thick walls to hide from the sight of the people around us. We keep our inner beauty clean and bright, letting it shine only for our own body.

All that is left is writing, writing about how we really feel inside, about who we really are. This is the only way we communicate to the outside world.

We hide the bones and cells of which our body is made but that’s not all – we isolate our soul too, not letting in the sun.

One important aspect, while building these walls, had been neglected: the windows. We somehow forgot that the sun cannot warm us if we don’t give it the opportunity to shine in.

How long should we wait before we take the hammer and start breaking down the walls? How long are we going to hide our feelings? Do we really have to wait until we shade our skin, like snakes do, so our loved ones can see our beauty? Aren’t we the masters of our fate and the captains of our souls?

We decide how we shall feel, we alone built these walls and we alone can break them down so easily. Lucky us that we don’t have to wait until our soul leaves the body so we could decompose and leave behind our beautiful structure, like a shell has to do. Have you ever picked up a shell, while walking on a beach? Have you ever wondered how it looked inside, trying to figure out the shape of its skeleton? Have you ever taken time to admire the beauty of nature?

Nature gives us everything we’ve ever been searching for. It gives us everything we need in order to be happy yet we are still asking for more. We are hungry and the more we get the more we want, being too dumb to appreciate what we already have.

Nature loves unconditionally but we, are we? Do we know how to love? Do we do whatever we do just because we feel like it or because we want something else in return? Do we really have to leave our bodies for others to see how beautifully we are structured?

No! We don’t! We can undress ourselves from these dirty clothes we are wearing every single day, and let the world see our inner beauty.

We can take this beautiful shell as our example, that we found while walking on a beach. It had to leave its beautiful home for us to see its lines and shapes, but we can use our power to show anyone our beauty. If the shell had had the same power it wouldn’t have wasted it, I assure you.

 

Don’t waste your power on building walls but take it all to spread love.
