I could be a writer.
But I much prefer photography.
Yet don’t they say that photos are worth a thousand words?
All I have to do is put those words onto non-light sensitive paper.
But I don’t because
Photos don’t lie and they will never
make empty promises that won’t be kept
or tear people down in their vulnerability
and spread rumors.
When I look at the world,
I am like a hunter on the lookout for that
perfect shot to capture the soul and
the essence of the world for what it really is.
Surely, words can describe the world
In ways you didn’t think of before.
But a description of an object
a person, a place, an emotion
is limited to a few lines or pages or chapters or novels.
I capture everything that cannot be put into words
scrawled across some piece of paper that will be thrown away
I capture all of that in one shot
that resonates louder than words
TYPED IN ALL CAPS
because it is burned into the chemistry
of the minds of those who see it.
