Sixty Second Test
How do you spend


a minute of time?





Do you fret or lament


over the past and its crime?





Do you weep for ten seconds


and worry for the rest?





Do you think of pure vengeance


when someone's been a pest?





Do you step across twenty more


thinking of danger?





Are you fearful of hate


or an unknown stranger?





Or do you dream maybe


of the things you can do?





Do you smile as you remember


a grin between two?





Do you look at the trees


and imagine they are living?





Do you spend thirty seconds


in prayerful thanksgiving?





No matter the time that you spend


in that space,





Realize its all moving


at a dizzying pace.





One half of that time


spend in woe or sorrow





Is really half of your life


that you won't have tomorrow.





So consider the thoughts


that consume your dear mind





And when you look in the mirror


that person, you'll find.
