suicidal butterflies

They are sweet and innocent
The people you want to be
They are gentle and kind
They are smart and brave
They are everything you want to be

Behind that smile is pain
a turmoil so great
it engulfs even you.
A tragedy so huge
no one will ever understand.
No one can.

The pain they feel is theirs
Theirs to keep.
Behind that beauty is just pain
Because it's a crime to be beautiful
It's a crime to be attractive
It's a crime to be smart.

So listen, kid
don't be them.
They are already there
and so are their pains.
Learn one thing though,
no one is perfect.
