"Become the change you want to see"-Mahatma Gandhi


The city of sinful need
Holds no place for me
For when I went there to feed
I forever starved

This city of worldly pleasures
Kept drawing me back
Keeping me searching for hidden treasures
That were not there

This city of sin
Forever taunted me
It took me to lands that I had never been
Only to abandon me like the ugly child

This city of lies
Forever controlled my reason
Telling me I could fly
Only to watch me crash to the ground

This city of slight
Kept me prisoner
It drew me to the light
That was only a mirage

The mayor of the city
Is the ultimate deceiver
Forever witty
Always holding his peace

Left to hang and die
I no longer want a place
In the city that told me I could fly
And then watched me fall flat on my face

I still come back every now and then to solely read this poem.

Pure perfection. A long time and no work from you. I hope well.

This poem was very good, and well written, but I don't have to tell you that. (:

No its about a time when I strayed off the path and started hanging out with the wrong crowd.
