The Parable: Convergence And The Scared Caterpillar

(DREAM-MAKER:)

Fear only one thing little one. Fear displeasing Me.

CATERPILLAR:

I do, Dream-Maker, I do!

That’s WHY I’m scared!k5961793

 

 

(DREAM-MAKER:)

That is the only good fear little one.

It will keep you humble. It will keep you

hungry for righteousness.

CATERPILLAR:

Ummmm, okay. Let’s see…

Dear God above, the source of Love, please here me when I call

With colors gay, begin today, to make me something new.

swirlnotes1redLet me sing, on gossamer wings, to dreamers—not a few;

A song to show, that all things low, can miracles believe,

If they will shed, all fear and dread, and new dreams now receive!

CATERPILLAR:

Dream-Maker? Do You hear me? I hate this place!

Oh-why-oh-why, did I ever pray those prayers!

Dream-Maker how much longer? Haven’t I waited long enough? Dream-Maker?

I did everything You told me to do—I followed. I obeyed chrysalis-clipart-butterfly-pupaYour instructions. Is this all there is? Is this what obeying gets you?

A tight dark cell—alone? Dream-Maker, why don’t You answer me?

I call and call…  are You there?

 

(DREAM-MAKER:)

I’m here.

Is it time?
