A little Legend which I remembered while replying to a thread in Elakiri. Thought of putting it down here.
"It's about a bird... a bird named as the Thorn Bird
The legend has it that... from the day hatches.... it looks for Thorn trees... when the bird finds it...the perfect thorn tree with the perfect thorn....he sits among the savage branches and sings the most beautiful song sung by any human or animal in the world....
So beautiful that the world stills to listen and gods them selves in heaven smiles down upon the bird....
But... he sings that song inflicting his heart right through the most sharpest and the perfect thorn that could kill him....and he bleeds his heart to death towards the end of his song.
For the legend also says... the best in a man can be bought forward when in dire pain.... in pain enough to kill him bring the best of him out to the one he truly loves"
That's the legend.
