THE THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE AND MERCY...

JUST YESTERDAY, THIS "TRUE" SCHOLAR TALKED ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOVE AND MERCY SAYING THAT, LOVE CAN ONLY BE TOWARDS THOSE WHOM YOU LOVE, BUT CAN''T BE TOWARDS YOUR ENEMEIES FOR INSTANCE!!
BUT MERCY CAN BE TOWARDS THE WHOLE UNIVERSE.
It was on Sunday afternoon, the 3rd of July
When my bird, Mercy, decided to fly.
From my deck on the ground, to the tree tops up high
Mercy flew and flew almost touching the sky.
Finally she landed on a very tall pine
But could she fly down – and return to be mine?
We called and we chirped; we whistled and clapped
Yeah, we could see her – but her wings she just flapped.
From branch to branch she flew and she hopped
Our calling and prompting we never did stop.
Lower she came after hours of calling,
While on the deck my mom was still bawling.
At last in the holly, she came to rest
That’s my bird, and she is the best.
Her bright blue and yellow, and orange face
Had finally found a low resting place.
We fished her out – so tired was she
Her freedom enjoyed – but just briefly.
Back in her cage – no longer to roam
You can hear Mercy chirp, “I’m glad to be home”.
