Reasons, Enough

Why does the moth
seek the light
only to break itself
and tumble to darkness?
Has some satisfaction been met,
some need achieved,
or was it simply struck down by curiosity,
eyes blinded by brilliance,
regret the last breath of life
in its frail body
as it falls to the ground,
to be swept up by a broom
wielded by a beast
almost as indifferent
as the light the moth sought?
