give an image(take a photograph)

Picture you as you grew
in the light of the cameras of your life
In the eyes of your parents you were a box Brownie
small image of black and white
As you grew,you saw yourself turn to color
Your image grew larger and wide
You were a slide,a collection of moments
Your family around you grew too
You gave them all pictures of who you were then
and they took a picture of you
Now digital fingers in virtual worlds
Photoshop and post online
You make a movie-you are in it
It is the images of your life
What happens next-you hold in your hands
as the camera clicks and snaps and bites
another image is stored for as long as you need
Which means more?-your image?or your life?
