Finding poetry

We seek beauty where we are
But there seems so little time
Scheduled until we are blind
The heart forgetting poetry

We learn to put away stories
All things but facts becoming childish things
We memorize names and dates
We forget about history

Reading poetry after poetry was forgotten
Looking for facts in the metaphor
Finding details, but missing the point
For we put our stories behind us

Yet sometimes we must reach out and find poetry
For some things cannot be reduced to equations
