Have you ever seen a butterfly,
who's wings were broken and torn?
The feelings you felt when you saw it,
what were they?
Did you try to help it?
Did you pick it up,
and hold itclose to your face?
Did you wish there was something
that you could have done?
Maybe you could have saved it?

Have you ever seen a wasp,
who's wings were broken and torn?
What feelings did you feel when you saw it?
Did you try to help it?
Did you pick it up?
Hold it close to your face?
No, I don't think you did.
When you saw it,
did you step on it?
Crush it under your foot?
Was that for you, or the wasp?

Have you ever seen me ask for help?

No.

That's because I'm afraid.

Afraid I'm the wasp, and not the butterfly.
