Same Second

It takes only a second to flash a smile
Yet it can make another’s life worthwhile!

It takes only a second to appreciate
That we steal another’s time being late!

It takes only a second to open our heart
Then real kindness we can impart!

It takes only a second to hate
But we all choose our own fate

It takes only a second to forgive
And it becomes so much easier to live …

It takes only a second for the future to become now
Yet all too often we miss it somehow?

It takes only a second to die
And we wont know why …

published another poem!


  1. Such a wonderful poem, Kate! Yes, every second matters! and we can often decide how to live the seconds…and if we have no say in something, we can chose how to respond to it. Choosing the positives is the way to go! 🙂
    HUGS!!! and congrats!!! 🙂

  3. That’s so true Kate. These words of you made me feel realising my mistakes that I’ve done with people whom I liked most and I’m really sorry for that. You’re becoming perfect day by day in your writing Kate. Every poems of you are thought provoking and it keeps me motivated for long period of time. Thank you. 🤗❤️

  4. Been a tad occupied by seconds, minutes and hours this week.
    Little Miss (almost 5) is here – (the whole week…all day – today just a bit more than half)-
    I get tomorrow to myself again, to attempt some catching up.

    Cheers and thanks for stopping by 😉
