Cassowary (Listen while you read)
Tell me you love me, go on; tell me you love me….
The Cassowary is a bird; a flightless bird. It longs to fly. It longs to be able to spread its wings and fly. However, this is an impossibility for this creature. It will not fly now, or in the future.
Why? Why will it not fly?
It will not fly because it lacks an important ingredient.
And, what is that important ingredient?
That important ingredient it needs to fly is self-love. Yes, my friends. This wonderful creature lacks self-love.
And why does it lack self-love?
It lacks self-love due to a misconception. You see, the Cassowary often thinks it needs to be more than it is. Yes, that’s right, my friends. The Cassowary does not think itself good enough. Yes, sad but true. The Cassowary fails to appreciate itself.
Is this not sad, my friends? Is this not sad to think that something so unique, so unusual could think less of itself.?.! And yet, this is what it does. It does not see itself in the true light of day. It does not appreciate how wonderful it is. It does not appreciate its own essence.
Won’t you join with me in hoping for the best for our friend the Cassowary. Let us hope that one day he/she will see themselves for what they are, and not for what they want to be.
