Soulful Downtown Skylines

Running across bridges at dawn

Counting Mississippis holding my breath

Five days left, but who is really counting

Eventually everybody’s debts must be paid – one way or another

Rainbow reflections bouncing off glass signs

Fenced off vacant lots too high to scale

Soulful music suddenly plays from out of nowhere

As if my screenplay of life really needed it’s own soundtrack in the background

But I stop running for a moment, just to listen

To find myself alone in the middle of nowhere

The sun rises and peers through the downtown skyline

And I am able to find a smile on my face

And I keep running
