It Only Took But a Moment

It only took but a moment,

For those planes to crash.

All those innocent lives went,

And the people turned to ash.


It only took but a moment,

For their wedding to occur.

People know how much it meant,

To have found a love that will always endure.


It only took but a moment,

For Martin Luther King, Jr. to speak.

Because of the time he spent,

The Civil Rights Movement hit its peak.


It only took but a moment,

For her to save his life.

She did not get a single cent,

But lots of gratitude from his wife.


It only takes but a moment,

For someone's world to change.

So always be grateful,

And act in the very best way.
