Bird Of Paradise. Empty Bird Of Paradise.

Bird Of Paradise. Author - Donna Word Chappell.

One day as I was walking
On the straight and narrow highway
I looked, and not too far ahead
I saw a tempting byway.
I saw that games were being played,
Looked like a county fair.
So I went in to join them,
And they offered me a chair.
I watched awhile, and then began
To walk upon the byway.
It seemed a place quite similar
To the narrow highway.
I saw the birds, the shrubs and trees,
And smelled a smell so sweet.
But as I walked, I failed to see
The net beneath my feet.
I heard a crackling sound, and I
Was caught so suddenly,
That I could not begin to guess
What happened then to me.
I struggled from inside the net,
And suddenly the scene
Was changed, and I began to hear
A groaning, and some screams.
The birds became dark, ghastly things;
The trees were black and bent.
The smell became a dreadful stench;
The path had a sharp descent.
I cried out in that dreadful place,
Then heard the Master say
In loving tones, so sweet and low,
"Did you leave the narrow way?"
"Oh Lord," I cried, "I'm like a bird
Caught in this awful net.
Please help me, Lord, to free myself."
The Master said, "Don't fret.
"I'll give you strength, my little one,
To break the fowler's snare."
I struggled hard, and soon was free
In answer to my prayer.
Then when my wandering soul escaped
from that old fiend's device
The Master said, "That snare can't hold
A Bird of Paradise."

I can relate to this poem, right now i feel like that bird caught in the net. I usually get caught in it when i take something to ease a tough situation, like a pill that does nothing but keep me stuck. I would so Love to fly free from the net, nothing i can take will ever create peace and happiness for myself. Vanilla2 you are aware of this net, there's half the battle.

Many Blessings

This may help to keep us focussed Spirit-Being.
I was trying to find one that was in flight.
