Not Worthy Enough

A Software Developer who loves to design eCards and write poetry in her free time. It's wonderful to help others express their feelings.

It was said, that a picture is worth a thousand words,
But these days, pictures are often accompanied by words…
They take form of captions, or labels and even get embedded,
Right into the pictures, overlaying the colors or lack of them,

And from the insides of hearts of the pictures,
These words keep shouting… sometimes distracting,
But sometimes taking you deep within the soul,
Of the creator of this image…

So maybe, pictures are not worth a thousand words anymore…
Or maybe…
Those thousand words are not worthy… not worthy enough… not anymore…
Maybe everyone and everything is greedier than before…
Or maybe just needier… and require a lot more...

not-worthy-enough

A lot more before we can absorb…
The colorfulness or colorlessness of pictures,
And comprehend the message if there is any…
That we do so without a doubt…
A doubt that we will offend beyond measure,
By misunderstanding the creator…
Or the doubt that we will cherish beyond treasure,
And do so when the creator is not worthy…

Not Worthy enough at least…

Yet another reason could be indeed,
That it’s the words which after all need…
The support of feelings which only visuals can arouse,
That words alone are afraid that perceivers will drowse,
Or even worse, non-perceivers will begin to grouse…
That words alone are just not good enough to hold minds,
That they have to be accompanied by pictures…
Images which support, or extend, or maybe contradict…
Add depth, or sarcasm but save the wordy derelict…

And make them worthy… worthy enough…

Inspiration

The English idiom, ‘A Picture is worth a thousand words’, always created a ripple in my thoughts. This time, it inspired me to create something featuring its elements — the words and the pictures. The two things which belonged to two completely separate categories of expression, came together to support one another. Although, at one time one of them was being suggested to be used instead of the other.

These two could be such subtle symbols, representing a lot more complex notions than just themselves — Notions of worthiness, desperation, connection, distraction — the list just seems endless to me.
