The Split Second
In that crucial split second
by Vikram G. Aarella
So many people’s destinies rewritten,
So many lives have changed
So many things forgotten.
The split second is the difference
Between life and death,
Between victory and defeat
Between heaven and earth.
Difference between beginning and end
Between coming first or second,
Between bright day and dark night
Stands only that crucial split second.
Unimaginable things can happen
Ground can shake, volcano’s can erupt,
Tsunamis can rise, meteors can strike
Time is what, no one can interrupt
