I was in the mood for simplicity, so here’s a simple poem. Two words so two seconds. Based on a fear I’m sure many people have.
Writing 101 Poetry, Day 4: Seconds
“Life moves very fast. It rushes from Heaven to Hell in a matter of seconds.” – Paulo Coelho
A new life sees the world for the first time. Simultaneously, another life takes its final breath.
A passenger that was supposed to board a plane was one second late. Hours later, the plane went missing, the passenger saved.
Unimportant as it may seem, a split second can change our lives in ways we can never imagine. So today, write about the basic unit of time, seconds. Reflect on those few seconds when a loved one was in a life-and-death situation. Relive the few seconds when you held your eldest child for the first time. Recount those seconds when you were waiting for big news that was about to change your life.
