For those who haven’t heard of it there’s a thing called the Butterfly Project, the idea is that a self harmer draws a butterfly on them when they’re triggered, they name the butterfly after someone who means a lot to them, if they self harm the butterfly dies. I’ve been trying to go with the ideas for a while now.


The long road to recovery

Scattered with butterfly wings

And razor blades

A long hard slog

But worth it in the end

When the butterflies

Need visit no more

And no longer risk

Their lives for yours

And a smile creeps

Over your face as

You say goodbye

To those brave little guards

Those butterflies.


Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
