A poem about friends
By Jennifer Aponte-Ortiz

Pictures aren’t just pictures
unless you let them be.

Memories don’t just fade away
if you just stop remembering.

Pictures aren’t just a four-cornered image
that freezes a moment in time.

They are a life-time memory
that brings back the past.

Pictures have different meanings
for all sorts of feelings.

Whether they’re good or bad
they’re always there to last.

This is why…
I love taking pictures
and mainly with my friends.

All because I know
that friends don’t usually last…
That is why I take pictures
to remind me of the past.
