(A Poem)

Man’s folly lies in trying to capture beauty
In a photograph, in a movie, in a sanctuary
In their failure to realize that beauty can’t be contained
...that it is naturally free and wild.

Keats once said that "a thing of beauty is a joy forever"
I used to disagree
Because of all the pain and sufferings that beauty can cause
Then I realized…
It’s not beauty that causes these
But man’s desire to keep beauty

Beauty can bring forever joy
Only if we accept that it’s not forever
Be happy that you had it for a time
Then let it go when it’s time to go
And just keep the moments of joy in your heart
