Put the camera down
Give it its well earned break
And let your memory do its job.
Stop watching the world
Through that 2 inch LCD screen
You brag so much about
And let your eyes
See the vivid colors
The world holds.
The bright blues
And dark greens,
The gentle pinks and purples and oranges
Of the setting sun
That lasts ever so slightly
Before fading into nothingness.
Let them watch the way
A breeze can ever so slightly move a tree,
See the emotion that faces really hold,
Not those phony smiles
They plaster on for the flash
Before the faces fade back to the
And happiness
They usually hold.
Skip freely,
Run as fast as you can,
Hold on tight,
Otherwise you’re left in the dust,
Splash in the ocean waves
And feel the salt bathe your skin
Without the worries of dropping
Your beloved camera,
Because I bet all it wants,
With its 2 inch LCD screen
Capturing every moment
Is to break
And have its job be done,
So it can do you a favor
And let you see the world
As it’s supposed to be seen,
Remembering what you remember,
Forgetting what you forget
And watching those colors of the sunset
Fade into nothingness
Knowing that your memory captured it all.
