See only what is meant to be seen
Glossed over and perfect on the face
Perfect control of light and darkness
Revealing only a portion of what is real
Personification of living the dream
Agendas to display the perfect place
Snapshots of a life in the more or less
Harvesting envy of a life surreal

Take it with a small grain when you look
The moments captured always seem so fine
Never showing the full reality
They’re only snapshots in a picture book
Comparisons to which only serve to enshrine
Snapshots displaying what we desire to be

Unintentional deceit means no harm
Though its effect can lead to envy
Applying filters is meant to charm
With snapshots of sometime serenity

Though what is revealed may look sublime
Snapshots show only a brief moment in time
