City life can be exciting and eye-opening, especially if you pay attention to the little things going on around you. I love going to the city whenever I can because everyone seems to have their own purpose. It is a place where you see hundreds of lives overlap, each with its own twist!
I run across the crosswalk.
Hair gets caught between my lips
Teeth shining bright I look up
Reflections sparkle up the buildings.
I see the clouds white as pearls
Posters of models and top brands surround me
Beep. Beep. Beeeeep!
“Oh, come on move it!”
I forgot where I was supposed to go…
Ah, never mind I remember.
Swerve left, swerve right.
Phew, that was close!
How haven’t I knocked into someone yet?
I turn the corner and hit the double doors.
Whoosh! The smell of coffee hits my nose
I don’t think twice.
“One Choco-chip double swirled latte please”
Shoot! I’ll be late.
The cold breeze hits my face as I enter the bustling street again
I wrap my scarf tighter around my neck.
A child is trying to keep up with its mom.
I wonder where they're going.
A painter is selling paintings of the skyline.
Shouldn't this be up in a museum somewhere?
It's so mesmerizing.
The bustling signs of life keep my spirits soaring high.
Finally, I'm not alone.
I keep moving towards my destination,
looking at the street signs.
Everyone is in their own world.
It's like watching a movie.
Everyone has a purpose and a place to reach.
I pull the handle and a warm gust of air greets me.
I look back to say bye to the continuous commotion and city-walkers
Alas, I've reached my place.
