One Second (Free verse) by TLRufener
One second can change your life It can take your chance to say goodbye It can steal your breath Send gracious tidings for your death Rip your soul from within you Make you too tired to even continue Turn the path you have selected Leave you lost, alone, and rejected It can slam down your hopes Tie you motionless under heavy ropes Shatter your dreams into dust Destroy your heart with one fatal thrust It can close your eyes to the night It can block out every shred of light Dims the sounds that fill your head Leave you cold and shivering dead One second can change your life In one second you can die

Up the ladder: What greater love
Down the ladder: An Old Friend

In one second my little brother can fit an entire Big Mac in his mouth.

Sounds like Eminem for some reason. Maybe I read it too fast.

I deleted them because you all were arguing with each other about something that had nothing to do with the poem.

That has nothing to do with it. I will comment on your poems if you promise not to delete any more comments that aren't your own.

Even if all is lost in the Sea of Shamrock Deletion, I shall always remember the day you agreed with me.

I often agree with you, or at least grant you certain points, while you never agree with me. I'm sure by your logic this means you're winning.
