Writing 101, Day 4: Seconds


In response to the Writing 101 with the theme Seconds

Countdown

Soon, in a couple of days
the world will celebrate,
it will start counting down
the last seconds of the year.
People will ordain new commitments
which, maybe, will never get fulfilled.
Thousands of thoughts, yet more wishes,
how has been the passing year?
Was it good or was it bad?
And what will bring the new one?
In the last minute there is coming
a flashback of a whole life.
And before the fireworks will lighten
the dark night sky,
the voice in the head will merge
with the ticking clock and count down:
ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four,  three, two, one…
