The Power of Despair

I am not afraid of your darkness. I am safe in it. I am not afraid of your silence. I am heard in it. I am not afraid of your power. I am protected by it. I am not afraid of your passion. I am carried by it. I am not afraid of your dominance. I am guided by it. I am not afraid of your aggressiveness. I am softened by it.

Fire cannot destroy water!

My Fear of Butterflies

I am really afraid of butterflies! They are so pretty and fragile, moving freely through the air. Peaceful creatures who’d never hurt anyone. They scare me so much!

I am so scared that I might hurt them when they come closer to me! I don’t want to break their wings. I don’t want to destroy them. Whenever I see one, I try to avoid it and go far away!

My life would surely be more beautiful with butterflies. But I really don’t know how I could make their life any more beautiful. For them I’m probably just another roadhouse on their way to heaven.
