The number "1"

One life, in this blink of life
One day, it’s true will come to all
One stand, one must take with a sword of justice
One word, then the air no one will breathe
One mercy, for which ones will receive
One look of paradise, praise the Lord for all who believe
One deed will be done for only that one
One looking back to the finish not knowing when did it start
One word to ponder, change, and the lie
One day maybe holding one’s coffee cup, looking at one’s flat screen
We’ll have the answer to this
One Earth, what one’s life on it all means.
