5-24-06, 3am-The LA night sky, it’s like a tease. You only see a few stars in the sky, you know there’s more, you know how glorious an untainted night sky can be. Maybe this night sky reflects how tainted LA has become. Just like all the street lights, neon lights, and all the other lights of the city that are always on, over power all but the brightest and nearest stars. It’s just like how all the evil, corruption, and struggles of day to day life over power and snuff out all but the strongest souls of the city.
The smaller more distant stars are not shown except to those who seek them out. They are forgotten, neglected, just as the many lost, weak, or struggling souls out on the street that are passed by, all eye contact avoided. No one wants to see what the more cruel side of life is like. No one is willing to take the time to notice these people except for a select few who also know their pain and suffering. So many beautiful stars wanting to be shown, wanting to shine for us; but we wont let them. So many souls wanting to be apart of something better than what was decided to give them. But no one complains. Too afraid to become one of the out-shined , outcasts, one of the over powered souls struggling every day to make it back to the life they lived before the bright lights and busy cold hearted life of LA conquered their souls. LA is a tease. It promises many things, then when the many believe the fairy tales the city sells, souls of promise and potential fall into the trap. Fall into the evil and corruption the city forgot to mention or give fair warning about. Just like the city lights overpower many of the beautiful stars in the night, the city consumes many pure and beautiful souls that just wanted something better. Now they’re just trying to make it back to the place they were before. Where they were beautiful, innocent, and untainted by the hazardous life of LA.
The LA night sky lies, just like the city it self. It only shows you what it want’s to show you, the biggest and the brightest. It ignores and casts off what it deems who or what are unfit or unworthy of the glory it has to offer. LA is a megalomaniac. It’s hubris blinds it’s self and those who simply accept the ideas and bullshit that they have been fed by the truly unworthy and ignorant minds; those whose minds were easily broken down and brainwashed by the false restrictions, ideas, and ways of life created by the elitists of LA society. When will the out shinned and outcasts realize the power they posses, when will they start a revolution that could change their way of life and create a new that would let the worthy and glorious ones have have their time in the light instead of being shunned to the darkness of alleys and street corners.
Or has this city already dug the graves for them, planned their paths to destruction and made certain that they will never escape? I believe that the faded souls will find a way out, for those that truly desire to shine will fight to the bitter end. It may take years of endless battles, but the war will be won by the just side, their stories will be pronounced to the masses. In the end the “losers” will rise and the “winners” shall fall into the graves they prepared for the blessed and worthy. The only question left is, when?
