A Picture

March 16, 2008
By Elizabeth Lockett, Belmont, MA

They say a picture is worth
A thousand words,
But does it tell you the story
Of the snapshot of someone's
Life that is frozen in time?
Does it tell you that the girl dropped
her ice cream cone that day?
Was she angry because her seventeen Year old brother forgot to pick her up At soccer practice?
Or was she angry at her parents because They were not there to comfort her Again.
Does the girl's picture tell you that Her friend died the day before.
This is her picture,
So you must know how she's feeling, What she's feeling.
This picture is not worth a thousand Words
The girl's story tells you a million
And That is worth something.
