Extra Breath

I never asked for an extra breath

Or another hour

The rapture could come today

And I’d probably be getting left

People come, memories go

Time is found, time is wasted

He never said when he was coming back

We think we’ll get right before

Too busy trying to avoid wrong

We become afraid to live

And in doing so commit the greatest sin

Afraid to do wrong, we hide our talents

Given to us to create good

And so stand by the wayside

In the face of evil
