In that ONE MOMENT

In that ONE MOMENT
You can love
You can hate

In that ONE MOMENT
You can laugh
You can cry

In that ONE MOMENT
You can create
You can destroy

In that ONE MOMENT

You can choose silence
You can choose words
You can choose actions

In that ONE MOMENT
You can take a step forward
You can take a step backward
You can just stand there

In that ONE MOMENT
You can be
You cannot be

In that ONE MOMENT
You can make a difference
You can make no difference

In that ONE MOMENT
You can give
You can receive

In that ONE MOMENT
You can trust
You can mistrust

In that ONE MOMENT
You can create magic
You can take-away the magic

In that ONE MOMENT
You can unite
You can part

In that ONE MOMENT
You can think about the future
You can dwell in the past
You can live the present moment

In that ONE MOMENT
You can connect
You can disconnect

In that ONE MOMENT
You find yourself
You lose yourself

In that ONE MOMENT
You are committed forever
You are uncommitted forever

In that ONE MOMENT
You dream new dreams
You let go of all your dreams

In that ONE MOMENT
You live a hundred times
You die a hundred times

In that ONE MOMENT
You lead
You are lead

In that ONE MOMENT
You are balanced
You are imbalanced

In that ONE MOMENT
You are pure peace
You are far away from peace

In that ONE MOMENT
You think
You fail to think

In that ONE MOMENT
You emote
You fail to emote

In that ONE MOMENT
You express
You do not to express

In that ONE MOMENT
You connect
You disconnect

In that ONE MOMENT
You give in
You hold on

In that ONE MOMENT
You try
You do not try

In that ONE MOMENT
You are YOU
You are not YOU

It’s just that ONE MOMENT
That makes all the difference
And changes your life forever
