FAMILY PHOTOS OFF THE WALL

                              By Jimmy Walker


What treasures sacred to behold.

Family photos on the wall, reminding us of stories of old.

Whilst it is time now, for those family photos, be taken off the Wall

Thoughts of it all, my heart feel hard and soul blasted to the wall

Family Photos off the Wall; House to be Sold.

Walls no longer covered with stories untold.

Just emptiness, as I must imagine from afar, with photos packed away

In a storage draw.

Family Photos of my beloved ones, colleagues whose attire approve as men and women in high places.

Now placed in obscure containers.

My memories of family photos on the wall. Whom shall I tell, stories of family photos off the wall?

Heartache, sad and gloom, never again, walk into these rooms and behold family photos on the Wall.

Family photos, family photos covered with dusk, sadness and gloom.

          Ain't it so, there's always a story behind each photo.
          Take one of the wall, barren of those photos, for that's the story you just told.

          • Blackhawkwings

            Precisely, each day as I prepare to relocate, seeing in mind with two more months walls will be barren. Appreciate your comment. - Jim
