opportunity

time is closing in
clocks wind at a dizzying pace

each second lost
like a crumpled dream
a second less to find your name

life goes whooshing past
people dying every day

oblivious to how they've rushed through life
blind to the precious moments they've lost

their time has run out
you have minuets to spare

how will your life be different
how will you show what you have to share

take time to make an impact
change a life
answer a prayer
