An Ode To A City

I am the city streets, paved not with gold but instead with the hopes and dreams of so many before you.  I am the honking of horns that fills the night, and scattered conversations that lull you to sleep from fifteen stories below your window.  I am the almost forgotten art posted on every street corner, the signs advertising "up and coming" molded to every brick and piece of stucco.  I am the city lights, illuminating every corner and every apartment window long after you've gone to bed.  I am the city, staying awake long after you've said your good-nights.  I am the city, anonymous and always there, long after everyone else has gone. 
I changed the layout and such of my page.  What do you guys think?  Let me know in the comment box!


  1. Aww, I'm new to your blog so I can't compare the layout to the old one, but I do like this one.
    And the poem and photograph were really lovely. The line about 'hopes and dreams' is especially meaningful.

  2. Thanks :) I still think the writing is too short, but I can't seem to add anything to it at the moment without destroying what I have.
    But thank you for reading, and for commenting!
