City Streets

Looking at these streets
That so long ago were neat;
With chaos & fear,
and smiles & sneers.
All my life I've known
that I belong right here.

Sitting in this cafe
knowing happiness is on it's way.
I see a beauty
in the painful streets;
Honestly glad that you are not me.
This outlook is all mine;
I write about it to kill time.
Pondering the fact
that one day i will shine
& you will know my face
on the day i owned this place.
