On the wings of a golden butterfly

to step lightly, bound by bound.

A gentle touch to be wholly desired,

descending down upon the upturned countenances

of those abrupt undertakings.


Frozen droplets of dew,

the intricate interlacing of a snow crystal,

and the serrated fork of lightning

all give shining examples of pure innocence.

But each has the power to bewitch the mind,

and to take a life.


This is the moment the lone butterfly

has waited for.  So now it begins,

a change in the dynamics of sound and light

upon the arrival of a tempest,

bringing in due course the precise line of fire

that will engulf the sky

to craft a carpenter

who will shape mankind's sufferings

to the detrimental effect of ruining another's plans.

Then harmony will exist to confront a deserter,

to end their existence

so that never more will one be deceived,

nor punished by death;

but given eternal life...

side by side,

bound by bound.
