The flash of life


A flash can be many things.

A device to brighten a room to help capture a memory.

An instance of near death forcing your life to flash before your eyes.

A minute amount of time it takes to get somewhere.

It’s only when life turns for the worse do we think of it as all these things.

When you want to end it all and you think you just can’t take it anymore.

Your life flashes before your eyes and you see that bright light.

The bright light that captured the memories you now wish to forget.

That minute amount of time it takes for you to get to the point of no return.

That last flicker of light greets you with your final goodbye.

All of these brought on by a flash.

The Flash of Life.
