Tied Within

Today I saw a ribbon
tied to a tree.
And then a bird fluttered by
and winked straight at me.
'How peculiar,' I thought
as he whizzed right past.
But then into the tree
the poor little bird crashed.
If he was broken or alive,
my eyes could not see.
So I began to walk to him,
only to be stung by a bee.
'How awful,' I thought
as the critter buzzed away.
But then it fell dead
and on the ground it stayed.
So i roamed further on
to where the bird may be.
But when I got closer
the little creature just stared at me.
'How sad,' I thought
as the bird lay still.
Just then it blinked and flew away
as if it wasn't real.
So with a sigh I sat
and noticed a butterfly on my knee.
Then it danced around my head
feeling so purple and so free.
'How beautiful,' I thought
as it disappeared in the sky.
Then suddenly things became clear
as the ribbon caught my eye.
It dangled in the wind
unhappy to be caught in the tree.
Only then did I realize
that the ribbon was me.
