Satire on spiritual perception
"One Eyed Man" by jaybird1
This man with only one good eye
had labored hard to find,
the path to God, in a troubled world,
that seemed completely blind.

He saw man's temples rise and fall,
he saw nature's wrath prevail;
He saw the mighty dominate
the humble, meek and frail.

He studied faith's theologies
and watched their wars unfold.
His two eyed friends excuses were-
"These things have been foretold".

Still, he searched the mysteries
of life's final afterglow.
'Till void of hope, he realized,
some things we cannot know.

We assemble things within our brain,
through pathway from our eyes
and they, perhaps will light the way
to those eternal skies.

Today,  they closed his one good eye,
as nature planned, he died.
Could he with two good eyes have seen
what was on the other side?


Author Notes
Perhaps, we should not look into the great beyond,but continue on
the path of faith.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
