Souljourn

Star bright...city star lights
glitter and gleam...nocturne dream
S.A.D.days age quick
Time Square...nostalgic bliss

Time ceased the city's alive 
Six sense corporate media's jive is
pervasive,invasive yet rudely persuasive
aerosol graffiti tagged wall mural ads
modern pollution spawns the clean air movement
terrorist assualts...primetime news
progressive activists protest biased corporate views

Closed eyes...cinematic trance
the worlds inviting at a glance
born and raised by t.v. productions
gurus predict the world's destruction
industrial pollution,high crime,war...atomic solution

My eyes capture Earth's essence,their spirit catchers each moment kept in mind
dreaming of somwhere beyond these confines
yet superficial memories fade with age
expiring like instant pictures
asphault and commercial realestate replace rural vistas

New age renassaince, crazed mystics predict doom,while internet profits boom
misleading mood crystals,biorythmic readings and psychic predictions 
tell vague stories of strangers once statistics
computer system data's erased as if their lives hadn't matterd

"Cinema Nirvana" passes for ancient dharma
their saccarine endings...cinema karma

Surreal retrospection
t.v. and reading magazines once cured my depression
Existentialism's survival wisdom's 
until my mind has matured I'm serving life in an asylum or until cured
