One Decision


One blink, a nanosecond,
Your car collides,
Lives are changed,

One affection, a season in time,
A woman conceives,
Life begins,
The circle.

One sound disturbs the snow,
An icy chunk breaks,
Tumbling down,

One bright smile, eyes meet,
Leads to love,
She says yes,

One calm, still voice calls to you,
Come to me,
I’ll give you life,

Two ways appear, which do you take?
How do you decide?
Prayer and faith?

A vapor, a veil, a fragile thread,
Connects us to this life on earth,
Takes a second,

Live this life well for God’s mission,
Or live it for what else you choose,
Takes a few seconds,

Our legacy is known most times,
By that decision,
In that time,
The vapor fades.
