Polaroid Boy

In an Instagram world

You’re a Polaroid;

A fresh classic at heart,

Full of life and color

 

Undeterred by the norm,

You brim with good vibes;

Spreading tailor-made rays

Of sunlight through the trees

 

Your laugh is outrageous -

I strain just to hear

The tear-bringing joy sound

That bursts forth from your frame

 

Yes, that is the image

In you, Polaroid,

That the focus is on,

To best capture the light

 

Mirth, it forms in your eyes,

And now in my mind,

As I take mental shots

Of you rolling with glee

 

Oh, my Polaroid friend,

With your flashing smile,

And those belly laugh jokes,

You spread love instantly

 

One snapshot of you, child,

I share with the world

That you expose to me

In your own awesome way
