Frozen laughter, uneaten pies,
that bright twinkle in her eye,
all caught in this picture, “her life”
You must think.
Leadership, volunteerism, clubs,
a speech being given,
all caught in this photograph, “what a life”
You must say.
What you don’t see is the
stress, hurt, and pressure,
all uncaptured in this photograph, “still her life”
You don’t know.
“How are you doing?”
You should ask.
Make her uncaptured life
just a tad bit better.
A still-life cannot capture her real life.
