Last Breath Poem by Buxton Shippy


One second left to live:
Who are you prepared to forgive?
Maybe the one that betrayed your trust;
Maybe the ones that plotted your demise.

One second left to live:
How many widows can I feed?
How many children can I cuddle?

One second left to live:
How many souls can I tell about Him?
To whom can I show mercy?

One second left to live...Jesus!
