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
