Horrifying beauty 

​Trust me when I say

There’s horrifying beauty 

Around you and I.

I could have used

A subtle adjective

But there is nothing subtle

About a fast heart beat

And struggling to breathe

Because that is what

The beauty does.

I need you to know

There’s so much more

Than the moment 

You exist in.

While you cry 

Over something trivial;

A kid just heard

Their cancer diagnosis

Or their survival.

The sun just set

At one place

And rose at another

A baby was born

An old man died

You cried 

Over not getting 


While someone smiled

At getting

What you already have


Thats how the world runs

In twos

You have to decide

Which side you’re on 

Or perhaps 

Your opinion won’t do
