My One Minute

Can a breath even save me?
Air within burning lungs
An old age destroying the young
What does a jolt of life do?
My heart increases pace
In a moment of silence, I am safe
Should a single day define all history?
Stretch me to leave behind
I trace my hopes, regret my lies
Will words be important as the catalyst to movement?
Lost in a stare of imperfection
This life remains a mere animation
Must man create his own trap?
One truth, one life to live it
I've been gone forever in only one minute
