The Time That It Takes

In the time that it takes to look in a mirror
All of your life can disappear
In the time that it takes to knock on a door
All of your life can mean so much more

In the time that it takes to jump out of a plane
The thrill of the moment is gone again
In the time that it takes to become a success
More and more become less and less

In the time that it takes you to realize
Your whole honest life was one big disguise
In the time that you spend down on your knees
Whispering away with your hundreds of pleas

In the time that it takes you to see the big picture
Was it worth it?
