5 seconds out of time
I mistook for love on a diamond platter?
This funny life of mystery
will never unfold its secrets
so we can see the choices
and its consequences
instead of jumping into a ditch
and all you’ll hear is
“you shoulda been careful”
but how can mistakes be avoided
when life doesn’t even give room for rehearsal?
I wonder more.
I rushed back home
to wear my virgin maid a crown
only to realized on her head a crown already lie
and the look on her face tells me
I am 5 seconds late.
