More To The Picture

February 8, 2012
In this picture is a girl sitting alone
Silent tears streak her face
Red staining her sleeves.

In this picture is a girl smiling and happy, even laughing
Friends by her side
Perfect world.

In this picture she is sitting on her windowsill
Second floor up
Staring at the night sky
Wishing upon a star
The music her parents hate playing loudly.

In this picture she sits at lunch with her friends
Laughing at some new joke
Talking about boys and homework
Enjoying her time.

These are the two pictures people see
Making fun of one, finding normalcy in the other.
But what if i told you there was more to the pictures
That they weren't two but a single one?
A single picture, two lives, one girl.
There's always more than one way to view a picture
Sometimes you just need to put the sides together.
