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,

just breathe

because the moment will come and flee,

we were not meant for earthly immortality.

The best place is just to be.
