by Andrea Colton

If a moment can be captured and placed in a frame,
is it a moment lost, or a moment gained?

Are the possibilities for your life
Only as endless as the amount of
filters you can place on your reality?

Is your transparency equivalent
To a smokescreen? And is your esteem held in
Number of accomplishments or

Are you silent in the face of adversity?
Monochromatic in a grey society?

Are you a stagnant tide, or a current, making waves?

Is your peripheral vision blurred to incapacity; The auto-focus lens,
the beholder of all you see?
It fears you might escape if you stop looking and

You are not a one-size-fits-all in a manufactured wasteland.

Burn yourself to the ground
and in the ashes, erect a shrine, for those who
are gone to you, to remember you by.

And move on.


Love without limitation and show kindness with no expectation.
Question authority. Doubt society.
In all things, live your life with uncertainty, because
There is no beauty
In knowing everything.

Thought provoking read Andrea. I especially like this line: You are not a one-size-fits-all in a manufactured wasteland.

Such an honest and true write! And yes, 'even in 'truth' there is uncertainty. Very nicely done lady.
