La perfezione è dietro la prima rotonda

Non l’avevo mai vista dall’alto.

E’ la rotonda di Lazzago, quella vicino a casa: assolutamente perfetta.

Quante volte rimaniano ancorati alla nostra fragilità di creature transitanti in un mondo piccolo e meschino! Con le preoccupazioni di ogni giorno affrontiamo con fatica le vicissitudini umane e spesso siamo tentati di gettare la spugna. Raccogliamo gli anni della vita in un cassetto e li lasciamo lì sulla soglia di un abisso profondo, dimenticandocene.

Non guardiamo oltre il nostro sguardo, ci giriamo dall’altra parte, chiusi negli abitacoli delle nostre autovetture.

Eppure, nello spazio di una mattina, tutto sembra diverso. Un abbraccio sincero, con le lacrime di felicità, pur provando dolore, ti fa cambiare prospettiva e riesci a vedere la perfezione.

A PG

Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take the gun, and count to three
I’m sweating now, I’m moving slow
No time to think, my turn to goAnd you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
Said I’m terrified but I’m not leaving
I know that I must pass this test
So just pull the trigger (trigger, trigger, trigger)Say a prayer, to yourself
He says, close your eyes
Sometimes it helps
And then I get, a scary thought
That he’s here, means he’s never lostAnd you can see my heart beating
Oh, you can see it through my chest
Said I’m terrified but I’m not leaving
I know that I must pass this test
So just pull the triggerAs my life flashes before my eyes
I’m wondering will I, ever see another sunrise?
So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye
But it’s too late to think of the value of my lifeAnd you can see my heart beating
Ohh-oh, you can see it through my chest
Said I’m terrified but I’m not leaving, no
I know that I must pass this testAnd you can see my heart beating
Oh you can see it through my chest
I’m terrified but I’m not leaving, no
I know that I must pass this test
So just pull the trigger (trigger, trigger, trigger)
