reflection on beauty

i find myself so entrapped in the negatives of this world that i fail to see the positives

the beauty in a growing plant, 

or a dying beast.

the beauty of a book-
once a tree, standing tall, creating homes for all sorts of things,
then cut down, chopped up-
turned into paper.
and upon it printed beautiful words, telling of worlds far away-
and characters so real they could've stepped out of the pages.

isn't it so beautiful how one thing can become an entire other world?

    if all you do is wear a mask,
    you become a mask.

    your individuality drains away,
    and you become a shadow of others.

    yourself is an illusion
    you are only a copy.
