A window of the world just lies in your den
projecting a point of view,
a notion of news with truth framed by a box
in an home invasion,
selling the medium of media fortune,
telling a story of highs and lows
of reality warping a future limited by time,
ad hearing to an advertised agenda,
an angle driven by deception,
biased by image, delivered by a reporter
sitting straight, jacketed with tie
and shirt, free pressed over
a voice for what we should believe,
testing patterns for ratings to beat the competition.
Fear and sex sells to satiate your desire
to be informed of your want
to be informed of your need.
Does the end justify the means
or is it mean to justify the end?
Is it a crime or just our perception of the extra ordinary?
Is it a reflection of society
or a fun-house mirror of distortion for profit?
Are you watching close enough
to tell a vision?

About the Author
As a child, poetry gave Justin Hart his voice. Since then, he developed his style, enveloping traditional symbolism, using nature to relate possibilities deeper than the literal level, offering more than imaginative stories to relay desire, belief, and purpose.
Some of Justin’s early inspirations came from the naturally simplistic, yet symbolic writings of Robert Frost, along with the depth of Khalil Gibran and with the wisdom of the woods through Henry David Thoreau. Ultimately, Justin is inspired by the Eternal Light around us. Many of his poems have been created through channeling this Divine Energy.
