Fly away little birdie

Fly away little birdie and fly you must;

fly away from all this stinking pile of shit

You have to escape this all right now;

before you take an ill-fated and fatal hit

Feelings are needles, sharp and poisonous;

emotions squirm like snakes in a dark pit

Crawl out of the trench you dug yourself;

before your will surrenders and throat is slit

     Legend tells us that away from the hustle and bustle of life and beyond the light of the setting sun, there is a forest – the emerald forest of imagination.

he pays a certain heavy price

He pays it with a piece of his heart;

each time sadly, an odd roll of dice

The man was tired of walking for long in the cold desert. The sand was almost silver and stung his feet with the chill from last night. An equally tired grey sun failed to warm the sand grains. And then when he had almost lost hope, Green Tara suddenly appeared out of thin air.

 

The man fell to his knees, joined his hands in supplication and addressed the goddess:

You are the goddess of all those who are lost;

and I have lost myself, correct me if I am wrong
