i have heard about the butterfly effect,
but i never believed it,
it is the scientific theory,
that a single occurrence,
no matter how small,
can change the universe forever,
maybe i am that occurence,
and maybe this is where my story begins,
because there is always a story behind everything,
how a picture got on a wall,
how a scar got on a face,
sometimes the stories are short and simple,
and sometimes the stories are hard and heartbreaking,
but behind your story,
is your mother’s story,
because her story,
is where your story begins.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
