Lost in Seconds

Lost in Seconds

A Poem by Hippy

idk just inspired by my step dad

Life goes by the minute,
thinking they'll always be there.
but when it goes by the second,
it will leave you begging for air.

some jump the noose,
others lay under gun.
we all pray for a peaceful sleep.
often that breath isn't won.

some break at heart.
makes them swallow their fun.
can't bleed out toxicity,
do recall your fun?

breathe by the second,
cherish your lungs.
COPD leave your breathless for minutes.
softly the air has won

out with the old
in with the new.
and yang..

there is no loss in death,
only loss in life.
with two sides to every coin
we all can still win in life.
