Five minutes

How long does it take to change a life? She wondered to herself while she washed the dishes Splash, the glass broke the plate Shattered in her face Blood everywhere, good night.

Live can change so quickly, Autumn. This is quite a profound reflection. I hope this is a fictional work, but it conveys a very profound message that we should all heed. Be thankful for what we have for it can vanish in a flash. Love, Carolyn
