The First Shrike Biography

If You Only Knew (seperates he from me) The Shrike appears in all of the Hyperion books and is something of an enigma; its true purpose isn't 'revealed' until the second book, but even then it is left a malleable purpose. In fact, this explanation is changed significantly in the latter two books (The Endymion duology) . The Shrike appears to act both autonomously and as a servant of some unknown force or entity, and in the first two Hyperion books, exists solely in the area around the Time Tombs on the planet Hyperion. In the latter two, it is effectively unfettered.


[edit] Physical Description
The Shrike stands roughly three meters in height and is described as being composed of razorwire, thorns, blades, and cutting edges, having fingers like scalpels and long, curved toeblades ...

The Best Poem Of The First Shrike

I Did Not Write This

People come into your life for a reason
a season or a lifetime

When you know which one it is
you will know what to do for that
person

When someone is in your life for a
reason
it is usually to meet
a need you have
expressed

They have come to assist you through
a difficulty to provide you
with guidance and support
to aid you physically
emotionally or
spiritually

They may seem like a
godsend and they are

They are there for the reason
you need them to be

Then without any wrongdoing
on your part or at an
inconvenient time
this person will say
or do something
to bring the
relationship
to an end

Sometimes they die
Sometimes they
walk away

Sometimes they act up
and force
you to take a
stand

What we must realize
is that our need
has been met
our desire
fulfilled
their work
is done

The prayer
you sent up
has been
answered
now it is
time to
move on

Some people
come into your
life
for a
season
because your turn
has
come to share
grow or learn

They bring you an experience
of peace or make you laugh

They may teach
you something
you have
never done

They usually give you
an unbelievable
amount of joy

Believe it
it is real
But only
for a
season

Lifetime relationships
teach you lifetime
lessons
things you
must
build upon
in order to have
a solid
emotional
foundation

Your job
is to accept
the lesson
love the person
and put what you
have learned to use
in all other
relationships
and areas
of your life

It is said that love
is blind
but friendship
is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being
a part of my life
whether
you were
a reason
a
season
or a
lifetime
