Elusive Desires by Ann Christine Tabaka


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
