I wrote this poem for @poeticworld ’s Writing Prompt #2! It’s really interesting πŸ˜‰.

An ancient photograph, so old and frail

An ancient photograph, so old and frail Of a memory trapped in time

An ancient photograph, so old and frail Of a memory trapped in time I wonder, does it show his joyful life

An ancient photograph, so old and frail Of a memory trapped in time I wonder, does it show his joyful life Or if the smile is fake sublime

I finger along its time worn edges

I finger along its time worn edges The sides patched and frayed

I finger along its time worn edges The sides patched and frayed Wondering, was he always smiling like that?

I finger along its time worn edges The sides patched and frayed Wondering, was he always smiling like that? Or if that smile never stayed

I wonder which trail he decided to take

I wonder which trail he decided to take Which crossroads that he chose

I wonder which trail he decided to take Which crossroads that he chose But perhaps no one will ever know

I wonder which trail he decided to take Which crossroads that he chose But perhaps no one will ever know When the story here has froze

A single moment, of a whole journey

A single moment, of a whole journey A flash in one long life

A single moment, of a whole journey A flash in one long life We could never find out his cheerful times

A single moment, of a whole journey A flash in one long life We could never find out his cheerful times Or his days of worry and strife

I look, I stare, what is that there?

I look, I stare, what is that there? What is that behind the scenes?

I look, I stare, what is that there? What is that behind the scenes? I lean forward, and abruptly I fall

I look, I stare, what is that there? What is that behind the scenes? I lean forward, and abruptly I fall As time swirls and convenes

I look around, where have I gone?

I look around, where have I gone? It seemed that the worlds crack

I look around, where have I gone? It seemed that the worlds crack I look behind, from where I fell

I look around, where have I gone? It seemed that the worlds crack I look behind, from where I fell And there he is, staring back

My mouth agape, my eyes wide

My mouth agape, my eyes wide I wonder what has occurred

My mouth agape, my eyes wide I wonder what has occurred But finally, it hits me hard

My mouth agape, my eyes wide I wonder what has occurred But finally, it hits me hard That something absurd has stirred

Wasn't this what I wished for before?

Wasn't this what I wished for before? What I've always wanted to see

Wasn't this what I wished for before? What I've always wanted to see When I thought a few seconds ago

Wasn't this what I wished for before? What I've always wanted to see When I thought a few seconds ago What his life might be

The world flashes as I travel through

The world flashes as I travel through The life he left behind

The world flashes as I travel through The life he left behind And I see the laughs and the cries

The world flashes as I travel through The life he left behind And I see the laughs and the cries The hate and joy combined

So life is complex, isn't that true?

So life is complex, isn't that true? A picture not enough to show

So life is complex, isn't that true? A picture not enough to show The wonders of life that had been lived

So life is complex, isn't that true? A picture not enough to show The wonders of life that had been lived The secrets that none know

And remember, before you judge or define

And remember, before you judge or define There's much more that they can hide

And remember, before you judge or define There's much more that they can hide For a photograph can't really catch

And remember, before you judge or define There's much more that they can hide For a photograph can't really catch What lies on the other side
