Picture poem by steven james humphreys
Poetry of life

Picture

they took a picture of it

because they didn’t understand life

so they looked at it

and looked at it

and looked

but if you would have listened to your heart

you never would have chosen the wrong love

and your heart would have never been broken

and if you didn’t allow yourself to be used

you would have had more to give to those who were more deserving

and if you didn’t trust the untrustworthy

you wouldn’t have been misled

and been so mistrustful of mankind

and if you didn’t listen to others

you wouldn’t have lost your own voice

and now that you have learned your lessons

it is time you must speak of things with wisdom and clarity

to help those who’ve lost their way.
