City Streets (Free verse) by greym0on
Do you believe in city streets-
With lights so bright, they blind the eye?
Or from a distance, a million blinking yellows and others-
reveal a certain night?
But I believe in city streets-
The truth rings hard within those lights-
And no one stops to pity or admire-
No face of kindness looks out from the crowd.
In city streets we learn survival-
How solitary the human life is.
We do not stop to smell the roses,
but pause only to stare out the window-
at the glowing lights-
the blinking movement-
and the bitterness-
of the city streets-
