Elusive Desires

Elusive Desires



You can touch the sea

but you cannot hold it

You can feel love

but you cannot contain it

You can have freedom

but you cannot own it


It is the way of mankind

to desire the things

that cannot be possessed

to control nature and people alike

craving ultimate power

wanting to play god


In the end we must acknowledge

that we are limited beings

Man cannot rule the universe

he can barely manage his own affairs

We need to take a step back

To look inside and accept things

as they are meant to be
