To make a difference in the world, you have to be different from the world.


a million things can happen
in
five seconds
a car crash ending a life
a child’s birth
a new year
slipping in

a thousand things can be
thought in
five seconds
this is the end
at last, victory!
no.

a hundred things can change
in
five seconds
defeat to triumph
life to death
nothing to everything

and now
all we have
is
five seconds.
