Aged Pretty WellI pulled out the old Janet Jackson CD today,Aged Pretty Well by ~Greenleaf1075
It reminds of my youth,
When I was impulsive and arrogant, and I thought I knew everything.
I didn’t care about what people thought or how I acted,
So in the end I acted with indecency and carelessly.
These days when I look back at what I have done I cringe.
“Why would I act that way?” I ask myself,
But there is no reply,
Only the silence of my own mind replies with an echo.
Then I think about the person I am today and I smile.
I am who I am because of who I once was,
I learned from my mistakes and have grown.
I think I’ve aged pretty well,
Like that 30 year old Loire Valley Chanin blanc I have in the back of the cabinet waiting for a special occasion.
I have learned and grown,
Something that would never had happened if I didn’t fall down a few times.
I have love unmatched by any other,
Something I would never have if I didn’t break a few hearts or have my own broken a few times.
I have true happiness and
I amI’m like a puzzle,I am by ~Greenleaf1075
All my different scars show you where I was broken
And then glued back together again.
I’m like a painting,
All the colors and textures up close look a mess and unfixed
But standing back they show you something beautiful and wonderful.
I’m like a tree,
Standing tall and strong against the wind and the rain
Giving shelter to those that need it from the hazardous conditions of life.
I’m like the river,
Flowing freely and full of life
Never tied down, but always on the path of life.
I am one with myself,
I am beautiful,
I am strong,
And I am free.
As our group name suggests we believe that photographs have a poetry all their own. In poetry the aesthetic and evocative power of language adds to the bare meaning of words. Likewise, photos have an expressive power beyond mere objective depiction.
It is our goal to gather the best photos out that evoke such a distinguished emotional and aesthetic response in the viewer and tell us a story all their own.
