City View

City lights adorn us.
Overwhelmed by the beauty before us..
This urban life is too glorious,

Mischief at the local park,
But this city will always be my heart.
Just take in that city view.

Sweet city, my friend when I’m alone,
To some, your streets their only home..
You shine your light on everyone.
Such a perfect city view.

Loved ones trying to make amends,
but I just want to feel good again.
Before I lost it all.
Hanging on that voice inside,
telling me that if I try
to keep my strength and spirit high,
soon the pain will pass me by.
White gowns and bright lights.
I struggle but I’m still alive.
