Day 13: Five Seconds


All it takes is five seconds

Five seconds for an opportunity to be missed

Five seconds that you can never take back

Five seconds that could have changed your life

And now you live in regret

Having altered your destiny

Because you let the five seconds pass

And convinced yourself once again not to do it

But what if you didn’t

Close your eyes

Count to five


I could turn back now


I will tomorrow


I’ll do it the next time


But what if this is the last time


I can do it

Reserve your fear for those five seconds

And then once you say five

Move on

And do it
