Ode to my camera

Capturing infinite memories
Making time stand still
Freezing the history of my life
Each moment immortalized on paper

The shutter slowly snaps shut
The scenery and people captured
Memories will slowly fade
But photographs live on

In 60 years, the pieces of paper
Which contain all held dear in the past
Will be pulled out of boxes, yellowed and old
To revisit memories long forgotten

Photographs are you own personal history book
Good and bad times recorded
Family and friends live on long after goodbye
Memories that you can touch and keep forever

we had to write a poem for school which was an ode to our favorite object or food so i chose my camera because i love photography.
