A sad story for a happy day

Once upon a time, a boy saw a butterfly
     it flew up and up and up
                                                      dancing in the air.
                     careless
                        free
the boy wanted to be free too,                                             careless
         the boy thought maybe, just maybe,
                                             if the boy could fly too,
fly that high
                                                                                                     he would be free
   and as the boy grew older,
                                                          his wish for this freedom grew stronger

so one day,
                              the boy abandoned all hope
                                                            the boy found the tallest place on earth

and jumped from it

for those few seconds, the boy was free.

                                                                                                              and then he fell.
