A Thousand Words

Updated on April 26, 2016

A Thousabd Words

"Fun and vivacious!"
"That crazy party girl!"
A photo of filtered laughter
Covers up her lonely world

"Life has no boundaries!"
"This world is to be explored!"
A smiling face in a far off land
A traveller searches for something more

"My perfect little family"
"A celebration of love over the years"
A family portrait by the seaside
Masks broken hearts and salty tears

Why do we hide behind our masks
Craving approval from cyber "friends"
When the naked truth is actually
A means unto an inevitable end

A picture is worth a thousand words
Or so they used to say
But what is a picture worth
When it's the truth we hide away
