"We do not remember days; we remember moments"

Behind a Lens
Is how I view the world

What the lens can see
I can see
And no more

Without a pair
Constantly sitting on my face
I am near blind to the world

Sometimes a pair of lenses
Can be put down
So I head for a third

In order to capture
What the pair can see
For eternity to see

It’s magical in a sense
That what two little lenses can see
Can be seen forever

Memories ranging from the ocean
To the ceiling of a room
Can be seen forever

Just because my pair of lenses
Saw it first

We had to write a self portrait poem for my Language Arts class. I included something physical about myself; I wear glasses. I also incorporated a major hobby in my life, photography.
