Let’s not forget the power and immensity
of the Universe
You ask me why I have a butterfly tattoo?
Well, I love the sword on my arm
Because it denotes the sword of justice
In my right hand
And the butterfly
About its handle?
Well that’s a silent salute to Mum
Who’s no longer with us
And yet is with us if you get what I mean
Mum’s always loved butterflies
She’d point them out from as far back
As I can remember
So all the time I see a butterfly
I just think ‘Oh wow, there’s Mum again.
Watching over me
Even though she bade a temporary farewell
When I was just 19
But no matter
I haven’t lost her at all.
And so that’s why I have my sword
And about its handle
This beautiful butterfly.
I’ll leave you now
And with it just this one thought.
Don’t just assume
We young guys have lost it
Because we have these amazing
They mean so much to us
And it’s our way of giving
A salute, a hug and a thank you
To those we love,
even those tribal designs
for we're in communication
with our roots
and with our Maker
