before you snap, click & post
when you come across
the most beautiful rose,
may you first take the deepest
breath of her sent
before snapshotting it.
when you put on the cutest outfit,
may you first twirl & dance in it like a queen,
before posting it on instagram.
when you embark on the greatest adventure,
may you live every moment of it,
breathe in every second,
before trying to capture it all
through your screen.
and when you go watch to see your
low key FAVORITE artist,
may you dance to every beat,
and let your body feel every sound,
before waving your phone over the crowd,
just to have something to post later on.
because no camera will ever be able to
capture that beautiful smell
or that feeling of utter confidence.
no snapchat story could ever retell
all the micro-moments of that adventure,
or recall that feeling of being so alive.
so live it.
like actually live life.
because what a shame it would be
for your camera's storage to be more
full than your heart's memories.
