Seven Minutes

You have seven minutes left.
That’s all you have.
So much can happen
In only seven minutes.

In seven minutes,
You can find a best friend.

In seven minutes,
You can plan your future.

In seven minutes,
You can manage to save that friendship.

In seven minutes,
You can remember all the laughs and memories.

In seven minutes,
You can destroy a friendship.

In seven minutes,
You can tell them, not to ever speak to you again.

In seven minutes,
They can try to escape a burning house.

In seven minutes,
All those memories can flash before you, because of one phone call.

In seven minutes,
You can call everyone you know, waiting to learn something, anything.

In seven minutes,
You can regret, almost everything.

In seven minutes,
You can cry.

In seven minutes,
You can think of a way to fix it.

In seven minutes,
You can’t take back what you did,
What you said.

In seven minutes,
It won’t be the same.

Love the idea of this poem. It's just me personally, but I don't think you have to repeat the "In seven minutes..." line over and over. I think it would make this piece sound more like a poem instead of a list if you took several of those out... but that's just me personally.

I love it! It was so awsome! And very relatable too. I can reate to over half of those. I almost lost someone too, but we're ok now.
