Photographs and Memories

A picture, they say, paints a thousand words.

They can help us see what things were like before we were here.

How they dressed differently.

But inside they were the same as us.

They had dreams of a better life.

They acted just as goofy.

They suffered the ravages of disease.

They tried to be “Different”.

They played games.

They worried about today.

They worried about tomorrow.

They fought for what they believed.

They died by the evil of others.

For all of the bad they endured.

They kept right on living.

To the very end.
