I just witnessed a car slowly veer into oncoming traffic which just happened to be a truck on lancefield rd at 720am, but the truck pulled over to side of road in time to miss the red ute which veered toward him and took up half the lane. Then the ute came back into its lane after it missed the truck and drove passed me. I was angry and shocked at what i just saw and thought about tooting my horn at them as they drove passed… Was it fatigue driving and they just started drifting over? but a few moments after i thought maybe it was intentional..then i remembered reading about suicide by trucks in australia and how it’s not that uncommon…and i may have just witnesssed an attempt at it. As all this happened i was listening to a dramatic instrumental piece in the car called ‘sunshine (adagio in d minor)’ by john murphy. Listen as you read. https://youtu.be/NQXVzg2PiZw
So now i wrote something like this..
This moment of our lives is unique.
To be alive is a miraculous priviledge.
Have you pain inside which you can’t negate?
Is their loneliness you can’t escape..
Does it feel like too much ..like
You can’t deal with whats on your plate?
Don’t linger on anger, despair or fate
Our lives are limited and fragile
Yet astounding and great.
Our pain is not our dictator
It is not an orrator for our life’s worth
Pain is a tool, it shows us our weakness
It has the power to transform
Ash into a great work of art.
Next time you feel pain
Don’t let it treat you like a slave
You’re more then one bad feeling.
You haven’t got much time left until the grave.
So be aware of your plight
And rather then squander your life
prepare to fight
Then i promise you’ll see a ray of light.
It’ll bring a change of focus.
The way you were before was just hocus pocus.
The life ahead of you is priviledged
Its unique and finite.
Treat it like new born child. Be gentle and supportive of all the weak areas.
Then watch yourself grow into something beautiful.
