lenses

India Hobson Photography

 

this lens i stand quietly behind

cannot completely see

or capture all that hides inside

focusing only on a simile

 

a contrasting image obscures my view

its likeness revealing my soul

one letting another filter through

and leaving me fully exposed

 

i wish to embrace all that it might see

beauty deeper than skin

escaping this life of misery

a delicate grace from within

 

instead i see through a broken lens

a scene that’s tainted in truth

grateful that this photographic end

is shadowed with colors and hues
