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 

More

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
