With today’s society pictures are everywhere
Someone always has some event captured
The whole purpose of Instagram and Snapchat are pictures
Because a picture tells you a thousand words right?
I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong
Pictures may convey surface emotion,
but not what is going on underneath
Happy Family Christmas photo!
But what if I were to tell you that in the last Christmas card there was another sister
The family is torn apart and no one can get over it
But everyone smiles for the camera!
Pictures can be facades
They can be faked
The people in the photos can act falsely
Words can describe every single detail
but can also leave out the biggest details
Lies can spiral from the perfectly shaped words
So which is better,
getting surface level stories,
all the details except the biggest ones?
I believe the mind is best
It’s all how you perceive it that makes the difference
I could be looking at the exact same situation as you
but see it in a totally different light
Both of us are right
but both of us could also be wrong
The mind takes in an input
from the eyes
and makes a decision
followed by thought and emotion
The mind is the best, but it is the hardest to express
So we put our perspectives in a way that we find fits best
Words or pictures
I’d like pictures with captions.
