Driving By

The city

Struggling

It’s citizens lost souls

It’s buildings there to stand the test of time

They want to leave the hate from here, but life doesn’t have second chances

They are cold, grumpy, bitter

Even the places meant to have bliss have none

The amusement park, rotting away, the paint pealed,

No kids running around, Smiling and screaming

The toy store, doors closed

But in that pain that suffering comes a miracle for so few

The lucky people they say

Selling all they can to leave

Sacrifice now, success later

They sell what they can, wave goodbye and move on

Driving on this path to a new home, to a new city, to a new life
