Sparrow and bag of emotions
(I have taken this idea from a Whatsapp posting and for gaining fame and name , they have omitted the name of the author. My thanks are due to the original unknown author )
In one city there was a sprightly sparrow,
And it got bored and approached the god ,
And asked him, “I have nothing much to do,
So please suggest me a hobby so that I am happy
God said, “I have allotted each of you sufficient work,
And so taking another hobby will make you suffer”
But when it insisted afgain and again , God tied a bag ,
To it back and told it to collect human emotions in that bag.”
The sparrow was very happy and whenever it saw any person,
Who is emotional, It collected that and put it in that bag.
It collected passion, anger , jealousy , cruelty, Pride ,
Joy, sorrow, bias , Partiality , avarice and so on and on.
When it saw one man become jealous and trying to,
Bring another person down, It would be happy to collect that,
When it saw a person become angry , the sparrow rushed there,
With great joy and collected it and this hobby made him very active.
But one day , When it got up in the morning, It found it,
Very difficult to fly and it called “Oh God, Oh God,
I am not able to fly, please do help me and god rushed there,
And told the sparrow, That bag of yours is very heavy.”
God continued , “ throw away all the emotions that ,
You have collected and then fly and be very happy .”
The sparrow could not agree with God and told him,
“Emotions are light and I do not think , things will improve.”
God said, “My dear little friend , try.” And sparrow let off,
One jealousy and one anger from its bag and it could feel,
That it could fly and so it emptied completly its hobby bag.
And started flying on its own with great speed.
God said, “Your hobby is good but all that you have collected,
Are negative emotions which are bound to pull you down,
And so never go anywhere near these bad emotions,
But only collect good emotions like joy , truth, sincerity and so on.”
God continued, “ you would have struggle very to collect them,
But even sack full of emotions will never , ever pull you down.
Right from the days of my first creation , I used to tell men about it,
But they were only after heavy negative emotions and keep on suffering.”
God concluded “ If only once in a while they empty the bag like you.... ....”
