Moment flash and pass us by,
fleeting as quickly they come
the good ones and the bad, confined by time
and we try to capture them,
configuring an ungraspable essence
into an ever-lasting presence.
We attempt to create immortal moments
We write and scroll and caption
to perserve a sight or emotion
all while current time is in live action.
We are endlessly chased by the irony of it all.
Mummifying past moments as the present ones wither away.
It is important to live in a time
that no words and no pictures can capture
When the valleys and raptures of life
intertwine to a complex web of divine.
Don't capture or freeze,
because the moment will come and flee,
we were not meant for earthly immortality.
The best place is just to be.
