Of Cities and Love

Have you ever have had

More faith in a city

Than you have had in yourself?

Like you know that

Come what may,

Whatever it is that pulls you down,

One glance at the city

That houses you

Can push you straight back up

From the dust, from the ground;

The people, though they

May not know who you are,

Or what breaks you from within,

Will smile at you

Because they know everyone

Needs has a rough day,

And a smile can fix something,

If not everything;

Have you ever fallen

In absolute love with a city,

Because of its people,

Because of a person,

Because of the peace it brings you,

Because it's home away from home?
