A little girl waltzes to a tune in her head.
A young boy begs the streets for some bread.
A mother waits in a hospital room full of dread.
A groom smiles at his wife-to-be as they wed.
An old lady pulls the last bit of her thread.
A homeless man stares at a stores comfy bed.
A boy loves a girl; she loves a woman instead.
A teenager writes a suicide note to be read.
A drunk man doesn't see the truck up ahead.
A once minor virus, begins to spread.
A billion single tears are being shed.
An army of first-time soldiers are being lead.
A colourblind man see's a lady in red.
A heartbeat begins, after being pronounced dead.

I really think you chose the perfect name for this. Each of these things happen every day, all the while we're living our lives as well. Nice work.

Thank you :) yeah I wanted to depict exactly that, and I was going to name it a time.. like 11:02 or something, but I think it's better like this :)

I love it. I will admit the second line reminded me so much of Peeta from Hunger Games just because he made bread and threw some at Katniss....Weird I know.

why thank you! I liked the idea…because the possibility of all that happening plus 5205034958034958093458309 things more, every second is very probable, and we fixate on ourselves. Thanks for reading :) x

interesting... but isn't the past tense of' to tread' 'trod'? With so many smooth lines I just stumbled over that one... so sorry for being a nitpicker. But I really love that piece, the moment's caught are so interesting.

rociobelindamendez Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013
hehe thanks for that, well it is trod but it's not in the past.. it's all happening in the present, thats the point of the piece :D all happening in the same instant. 

Thanks so much! xx

actually it's a passive voice :p not a past tense. Still, I think you'd have to use 'trod' or trodden' (not actually sure exactly which, from the feeling rather 'trod' than 'trodden' but English is not my first language). But I am a teacher so these things tend to tickle me :p. And it just feels strange when reading it.
