Captured Imagination

Feet settled on still ground.

Apparently I’m glad

That I’m still around.

Visions of a beautiful future

Were once what kept me afloat.

It wasn’t until hope’s lantern was abandoned

That I found the past is hard to tote.

I unpacked my bags,

For all the world to see.

And I left them to float in a digital sea.

Becoming myself, unmasked.

Changing my inner landscape,

Instead of seeking astral escape.

I never bought into the screens.

I played imagination the old-fashioned way.

Before it was captured

By someone in it for pay.

They capture imagination,

And help yours run away.
