A picture may tell a thousand words,
but sometimes a thousand words aren’t enough.
A thousand words may tell quite a story,
but sometimes that story is fiction.
Sometimes the story the photo tells,
is not be the story the subject knows.
Sometimes the photo has pieces missing,
or intentionally cropped out.
Sometimes the photo is retouched,
altered, distorted, with filters applied.
What we see is not always enough
to know the full extent of the truth.
Your feelings may speak a thousand words too.
but they don’t always tell the full story.
Those feelings are indeed valid,
but they are not always truthful.
Sometimes we are like a thousand-piece puzzles
with less than a thousand pieces present.
Sometimes there’s not enough ink
to express all that we think.
Sometimes the story your feelings share
Is the exact opposite of truth.
What we feel is not always enough,
to know who we are or to Whom we belong.
