0.857 seconds
That’s all that it takes
For a day to be made
Or a heart to be broken
A life to be started
Or one to be taken

0.857 seconds
That’s all that you need
To build someone up
Or crush someone’s dreams
To make lasting memories
Or recurring nightmares

2,522,880,000 Seconds

That’s 2,943,850,642 chances to have your life changed forever
And 2,943,850,642 chances to change someone else’s life forever
0.857 seconds, that’s all that it takes

The author's comments:
