Which Cannot Be

Of everything we want, there’s a part we cannot have. Maybe its an object, maybe its a job, or maybe its a loved person. How to capture what we want for us? How to not let it get lost? It’s like trying to hold water with your fingers. It’s like having two birds flying and none in your hands. Someday you will realize you cannot have everything. Yes, a part of it does get lost. Somethings just cannot be. And it will hurt, because you cannot choose. It’s the wind’s job to do that. Sometimes very precious pearls get lost forever, like sand in the wind.
