Suppose U Stood Facing A Wall Of Photographs

Suppose you stood facing a wall of photograph from your unlived life
and make the suggestion that the wall will look much better
if your accomplishments weren’t neglected.

A photo of you with love, a photo with you without love,
time shifting through memories never lived,
yet a remembrance of the forgotten peculiar.

The pictures arranged perfectly,
and the wall beautifully set,
the glassy reflection returning an image
and a shadow through daylight you are unaware of.

Then would you be determined?
Would it come to mind to live your life differently?
Seeing yourself in a state of existence
is an honor to change what hasn’t been done.

Suppose the very last photograph hasn’t been taken.

Would you paint it yourself,
telling a story of predictions,
or leave it clear of thought,
making true the unlived life
now left to be boring.
