I wonder how you feel in the big moment of life:
As the world begins to spin slower and pain appears,
The breathing changes and moods are enhanced.
Never before have you experienced the imminence;
A magnitude born out of the sheer uncertainty
Grips the space as though time will never end.
In the wonderment of the pleasure lives
A more than palpable fear of significance:
Life is changed today fore-ever.
