Summary

Ever looked at a portrait and wondered about certain things, then one day that same photo is in your possession, yet you wish you could hear what they went through

There’s this portrait on the wall I saw

The frame ragged and rough

There appear around the edges nicks and cuts

 

This painting is not your normal scheme

For it sits on a background unseen

This portrait seems to have been around years

Though the paint doesn’t seem to fade

I wondered to myself its age

 

The individuals in this painting I know not

Meanwhile I resemble this is for sure

I remember where I saw it first

A different frame in black and white

Above a fire place centered in light

 

I questioned this portrait and then my copy

This is a part of my tree unfamiliar history

Starring in the eyes of whom I want to know

Wondering their struggle and what role did they play

It wasn’t until death in the family

That this painting hangs on my wall this day
