I notice people that struggle to find their self worth, their meaning for living, the struggle of finding where they fit in. Their actions become harmful because they are motivated by desperation,
they drain themselves mentally and dive further into sadness until it can no longer be helped. They cage themselves up and let their fire burn out, they become disconnected from the beauty of
living as lose themselves searching. - if youre struggling to see the connection, or are confused as to the point I was trying to make be sure to comment for an explanation.

Wondering blue fire fly,

 Are you struggling to find your worth?

Something so minute , on this giant turning earth.


Wondering blue fire fly, 

Why is it you look lost?

All this effort searching, with exhaustion as the cost. 


Wondering blue fire fly, 

Where is it you belong?

When the flicker of your wings, hum a different song.


 Blue fire fly,

Why are you kept in jars ?

For your light is dull, in comparison to the stars.


 Grey little fly,

Who put your fire out?

Extinguished by floods, of anxiety fear and doubt.


Silly little fly,

Did you struggle with your sight?

For a worm is wingless, yet you still had your flight.
