Once There Was a Man
Alexandru Cosmin Gheorghe
Once there was a man alone in a crowded place. He perceived time differently than others, and he wanted to tell that story.
Therefore, the story begins when… I heard a noise, a loud noise…
I looked behind, somewhere, at a lot of people and I saw through the mind’s eye.
What I saw was transmitted in the heart’s perception of time, as if time stopped. I could see, hear and feel everything around me. My perception showed me each person as they were. I started to observe them one by one. Everyone was talking on the phone complaining, laughing, lying and hoping.
Suddenly I started to like everything in every person as it was, and I felt a love for every human being, something told me loud but smoothly…
“All are your brothers, part of you, and you are a part of them” then… I said to myself, “All my brothers are parts of me”, then I stood up to get off and it seemed everyone was looking at me as if they’ve heard me!!!…
This is the truth… This is a true story… Now that I finished writing this, I am wondering…
Why cannot we love each-other?
Why don’t we unite?
Why do we hate each other so much?
Why win if we lose a brother of ours, a part of the whole?
Let us correct this selfishness in us… to tell a good story the next day!
Try to turn on the light which blinks from inside you!!!
