City

Maybe it’s the lights;

Which beautify the streets at night;

Or the tall buildings

Which seem to touch the sky;

Or the flashy cars which speed by;

Gracing the highway with their wheels;

There’s something about the big city;

Which keeps the mind dreaming on;

Believing in all possibilities;

The heart beating in ecstasy;

Pumping adrenaline;


It’s where all the big guys meet;

The address of those who call the shots;

Where the red carpets are laid;

And the spotlight turned on;

Where life is unapologetically expensive;

Yet the dream location for the ambitious;

Where they say the grass is greener;

But only the fittest survive;

Where opportunities abound;

And crime is prevalent in equal measure;

 

Some go to the city and get lost;

In the hustle and bustle of the occupants;

In the noise of the plane, cab, train and bus;

With everyone busy heading somewhere;

Others find themselves in the city;

Where their potentials are recognized;

Their efforts appreciated;

And their talents celebrated;

Haters and obsessed fans may abound;

But every rose has its thorn, doesn’t it?

 

But everyone will make it to the city;

Or would like to live there;

For one reason or the other;

And that’s okay;

The life isn’t for everyone anyway;

But if you can’t go to the city;

Bring the city to you;

Create the opportunities where you are;

Sweat it out and realize your dream;

And the city cameras will find you;

And tell your story to the world.

    But if you can’t go to the city;
    Bring the city to you;

    Or better still, be your own city.
    And let the World know about you.
