The Gravest Moment

a man said:

–the gravest moment in my life took place in the battle of the Marne, when they wounded me in the chest.

another man said:

–the gravest moment in my life, occurred during a Yokohama seaquake, from which I was miraculously saved, sheltered under the eaves of a lacquer shop.

and another man said:

–the gravest moment in my life happens when I sleep during the day.

and another said:

–the gravest moment of my life has taken place in my greatest loneliness.

and another said:

–the gravest moment in my life was my imprisonment in a Peruvian jail.

and another said:

–the gravest moment in my life is having surprised my father in profile.

and the last man said:

–the gravest moment in my life is yet to come.
