One Instant

One instant changes my life forever
One instant can do that
But one sound?
One loud bang
And I feel my life is over
In actuality it's not
But someone else's is
Or about to be
In one instant
I must decide
Do I run to the fallen
Or do I chase after the gunman?
Do I follow the road of love,
Or do I run the path of hate to hell?
Only I can decide
And only in that instant
Should I hesitate now it could prove fatal for me
So in the instant I decide
And my life is forever changed.
