A Split Second


My friend Katherine Felix continues to challenge me to write. This time, she wanted to see a piece whose theme was overcoming adversity to make one stronger.  Close friends of mine know this story, and I was suddenly able to write this. Another friend CherBeautyGlam helped me edit it a bit, and this is the final result. 🙂

A Split Second

A split second

Was all it took

For bicycle bar to knock

Helpless child

From mother’s arms

A split second

Was all it took

For innocent life to balance

On surgeon’s knife

A coin is tossed…

A split second

Was all it took

For miraculous joy

To overlook

As life was saved

A split second

Was all it took

While at the Cross

The darkened life

Radiates with light.
