Life in a Snapshot


You live your life in pictures,

Snapshots of a man-made moment

Shallowed with each glance

Standing for nothing, a mere facade anyone can crack

The appearance of a magnificent life

From a far you paint a magical moment 

Yet when magnified, is a trite existence 

One day, your film will fall to the ground

Immediately exposed, ruined

Harsh images quickly appear and paint your true story

On that day, you will wake up, old and alone, 

Your life thrown away in status and photographs
