“The City”

 

She felt lost

in the rush

of the big

city

everything

moving

way to fast

for an easy

going girl

wanting to

pause

as she walked

along the Blvd

to enjoy some

wild flowers

growing through

the cracks

between the

ground

and a wall,

but she kept

getting pushed

forward

down the

sidewalk

by the onslaught

of people

coming from

behind her

forcing her

to pass them

by,

she’s still not

understanding

that hurry up

look

they get

in their eyes

paying no

attention

to the world

all around them

as they briskly

went by

trampling their

beauty

right into the

cement ground

beneath them,

she didn’t

believe

in strangers

if she saw

someone

interesting

or thought

she might like

to know

she would stop

and extend

her hand

and say hi

ask them to

tell her their

story

listening intently

as they spoke

then leaving them

her smile

before falling

back in line

with the crowd

and continuing

on her way,

she loved

exploring

the city

going to places

you’d never find

on any kind

of map

and if you

asked her

where she’s been

she would say

“where the

people live”

those undiscovered

hubs of population

that the masses

just ignore

never taking

notice

of the real

life

going on beside

their well-traveled

paths

that they take

on a daily

basis

wearing the

blinders of a

medericory

style existence

only looking at

the things

their told to

see

while she can’t

help but notice

all of life’s

glaring wonders

shinning before

her,

she’ll never

quite

fit in

living in the

city

but it’s her

home now

and it’s where

she’s going to

make

all those

dreams

of hers

come true…
