We admire how butterflies flutter their wings amongst the flowers. We bask in their presence, even for a short while, for their presence in this busy, tiresome world is rare. Here is a butterfly, one to admire and to listen to, a butterfly who hopes to heal the world with the gift of words, magically enveloped with her tears.
Who is the Butterfly?
MM Merilo is a BA Sociology graduate from the University of the Philippines – Diliman. Imaginative, her thoughts flow boundlessly and endlessly, expressed through her words, hands, and pointes. Passionate, she pours her whole heart, mind and soul into the matters she believes in. Saccharine, she faces life armed with love and sincerity, and remains to have faith in the world and its citizens.
She dreams of flying, but is afraid to fall. So she just closes my eyes and imagines, listens to the beat of her heart, then feels the fast winds blowing, and the scorching heat of the sun. . . then reckons, she is alive.
