Anthony Gonzalez

4 Seconds

One of life’s greatest ironies is that in the first few moments after receiving really good or really bad news, you feel exactly the same


In those 3 seconds

You’re emotionless   


There’s no joy

No fear

No excitement

No pain. Just



am I dreaming

is this possible

where do I go from here.


It’s at the forth second

where the feelings deviate,


for her it was the latter.

Anthony Gonzalez is a second-year student in the college of Arts and Sciences studying economics. He is a starting midfielder for Boston University’s unofficial club lacrosse team, The Red Dogs, but when he’s not on the field he can typically be found procrastinating on his homework assignments on the bottom floor of Muger library.
