A pictures contains too many words.

A snapshot from the family album,

Never leaving a memory behind.

From birth to death,

All trapped in time.

For years will pass regardless,

Days fade into the mist.

Pictures trapped all the bliss,

From two years to a century ago.

Struggles, happiness, hate, and love,

Pictures are memories we show.
