Moments Caught - An Original Poem by S

Cameras can't compare with the truths that once lay there.

Even in the face of adversity

A person can still find time to rejoice and laugh

And speak for the downtrodden

Even when no one else may stand up on their behalf


I've seen even those who have little

Give of their compassion and time

I've seen so many people

Give the best of themselves while never expecting it back

I've seen people hold their head up high

Even when things seemed at their worst

And smile at the blessings in life

While others who had more

Mourned their life as if they were cursed


I've seen triumphs of the human spirit that will remain unknown

All these priceless moments

On cameras will never be caught

They are forever cherished

For the joy and miracles they have brought


And though famous these moments may be not

Remember them as they happen as moments caught.


- S.



Cameras may capture the moment but nothing compares with being there to experience those moments caught.

Some moments may seem insignificant, but they can be caught in our memories and stored there forever, enriching our lives as we give thanks for our many blessings. A lovely poem.
