A lifetime|a second

What a difference a
second makes
to a lifetime.

A turn this way, a
movement that,
a chance gone
and another taken.

It could have been
a different life,
another place in space,
a different outcome,
even to death and life.

What a difference
a life makes
to a second.

This experience,
that trauma,
these views,
those valves.

All encountered
in a second.
