If you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for the shore.
-Ray Bradbury

Bird, why are you so alone?
You sit on the electric wire there
By yourself.
You do not partake in the bird seed
That all the other birds eat.
What to do now, bird?
What are you going to do?
-You know not-
So how will you fly if you
Don't know where you are going?
Whst gave you away, bird?
To the other birds,
That let them know that
You are not like them.
Who made you like this?
Who gave you this gift
Of hunger for knowledge,
Want of truth,
Catcher and maker of words and Stories?
I ask ofyou who made you
Not like the others, but
I already know.
I already know who made this bird.
