One Word Photo Challenge: Saffron

Featured image

This was originally in response to Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge. Now it’s May 15, 2015, and I brought it back up because I think it fits today’s writing prompt from the Daily Post: “The Clothes (May) Make the (Wo)man.”


Get your shopping on,

At the mall,

Max your credit cards

You don’t have to choose,

Buy it all

So they like you. Do they like you?

Wait a second,

Why should you care, what they think of you

When you’re all alone, by yourself

Do you like you? Do you like you?

You don’t have to try so hard

You don’t have to give it all away

Featured image

You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up

You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try so hard

You don’t have to bend until you break

You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up

You don’t have to change a single thing

Take your make up off

Let your hair down

Take a breath

Look into the mirror, at yourself

Don’t you like you?

Cause I like you

“Try,” by Colbie Caillat

Visual interpretation of Colbie’s song: I kept this challenge in mind when I recently went shopping. The rows of fabrics triggered the idea of individuals engorging themselves with clothes (or anything) to satisfy society, to be noticed, to be liked, to be remembered. They lost their senses and marred the saying “Put others before yourself.” From the fabrics, I passed a Little Mermaid T-shirt. Her image on the rock could be perceived as a patient and hopeful attitude, but my thoughts steered to a self-critical one. As I strolled past fake flowers, Colbie’s song played overhead. I narrowed my eyes at the plastic flowers, which could easily symbolize innocence being lost and lies replacing truth. The loofahs seemed fitting for the idea of washing yourself off, returning back to base, and getting to know and love yourself (again). Annnnd what better way to end all of this than with an Audrey Hepburn wall decor?

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,

the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes,

because that is the doorway to her heart,

the place where love resides.

True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows

& the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
