Something my family has never done

I look at the picture everyday 
Something about it seems so real 
Its these kind of artist that make me wish I was inside the picture and never leave 
Its the kind of things my family does not get
Its the kind of thing that my family would never approve of 
Something to make me unique from my family
We all have to be the same in there book 

It was once told to me by an ex lover 
"Forget the people who wish to put you down but remember the ones who want to help" 
This is the sentence I follow everyday of my life in this so place they call earth 

I know I have a place in this world 
My place is being a photographer
Captering ever little moment and enjoying it 
Some thing I know my family has never done.
