Butterfly Effect: the Essence of Chaos

If a butterfly’s flapping
Can cause a tornado in Texas,
Will the absence of action
Have an inverse effect?

Can a blade of grass
Pulled straight from the ground
Form a cave, a void, a hole
Half a world away?

Will an action not taken
Without ample consideration
Initiate a chain of events
Ending in Destruction?

Nearly ten years ago,
One word could have changed a life
But the utterance was never,
Never heard.
