A minute of failure.
Ten seconds to consider,
Three to start,
A moment of doubt,
Two more of regret,
Eight seconds to shake it off,
Split one in half to go on ahead,
The other half to take a breath,
Regain composure,
A tenth of a minute to wait for Opportunity to catch up,
Eleven seconds of free fall,
Seven seconds till impact,
Nine to brace and prepare,
One to let Adrenaline set in,
The last second you hesitate and miss the train.
