Beauty in Tragedy, The Poem


Beauty in tragedy,

Is it strange?


An oddity,

That I find beauty in tragedy?

I see the strongest of strength

I see the wallflowers blossom

I see the power of humanity

In tragedy

A unity

Deeper than the deepest ocean

The most profound revelation

I see the possibility

Of humanity

In tragedy

Is it strange?

Is it odd?

Am I an oddity?

I can see beauty in tragedy.

    I see beauty in tragedy.
    I love that! We often learn our greatest lesson when we go through the tragedies of life.

    I like tragedy better than any other genre. Tragedy is about beauty and bliss, love and joy.. and losing them.And moving on til finding them again. That’show I’ve always seen tragedy. 🙂

    Without tragedy, we would not be able to comprehend the joy’s in life – the two opposites need eachother. We are stretched by tragedy, pushed to emotional peeks that bring out strength – a gift in disguise – that only humanity knows. Beautiful poem Jennifer.
