A moment

We all live in different moments at different times within our lives

A moment
by Delroy Nesta Williams

Need a moment to catch my breath
A moment just for myself
At midnight when all is asleep
With only the stars staring back at me
Speaking words only for my ears
I crave this time of seclusion
This moment with no fears

Need a moment to shine
A moment that is all mine
An opportunity to stand out
With all eyes upon me
All listening to the words I speak
An instance of fame to covet
Recognition at my fingertips

Need a moment in the multitude
A moment to congregate
Invisible in the crowd
Blending in among the mob
Comfort in the millions around
An occasion to go unnoticed
