five seconds

November 3, 2008
a million things can happen
five seconds
a car crash ending a life
a child’s birth
a new year
slipping in

a thousand things can be
thought in
five seconds
this is the end
at last, victory!

a hundred things can change
five seconds
defeat to triumph
life to death
nothing to everything

and now
all we have
five seconds.
