Synchronous Eyes

Synchronous Eyes

A Poem by Gilad Levanon
"

A man's thoughts before he gets hit by a truck.

"

When once I did believe in luck,

Did I remain utterly unstruck,

Then did I fear the oncoming truck,

Oh how terrible then was my luck,

 

When once I did believe in coincidence,

Did I move irritably from instance to instance,

Then did I live life without seeing its’ brilliance,

Oh what an unfortunate coincidence,

 

Then the truck did hurtle towards me,

And at first did I fear it completely,

For then was I about to leave my life of randomnity,

And in that moment I wanted only to see,

 

The reason for my misfortune,

An oh how I wanted it soon,

Then did I switch to a different tune,

Then did my mind escape in an invisible balloon,

 

I did now see the world and no longer did I despise,

For I had opened a pair of synchronous eyes,

And in that moment I did banish all my lies,

And then they were not sorrowful cries,

 

I did learn to see the delicate plan,

That was hatched before there was man,

I did learn the way all courses ran,

And the way they were all part of the plan,

 

I did see how all of everything,

Had brought me to the point of living,

In exactly the appropriate timing,

Suddenly the world was rhyming,

 

It was all a tapestry of perfection,

Designed to teach us love’s true affection,

But here’s the amusing secret section,

It’s that perfection does lie in imperfection,

 

When once I did believe in fate,

Did I learn then never to hate,

Then did I embrace that soon I would be late,

Oh how beautiful is my fate,

 

When once I did believe in synchronisity,

Did I move step by step so graciously,

Then did I live life seeing only beauty,

Oh how wonderful is synchronicity,

Interesting and thought provoking piece. I've had a few experiences with close death in my lifetime and it only made me open my eyes more and embrace life in a different way, which seems to be the same direction with this piece for the man within the story. Sometimes God works in mysterious ways and it takes a little while for us to realize what we are really doing and what we are all about. Really enjoyed this piece. Nicely done.
