Finding Home

A Poem by YouoweYoupay
"

What do you know of cities?

"



Finding Home

...

Your Fascination 
Like that of a child
With faded exhales
And showers of light
But your sweet little palms
Stretch in glee 
And they are lost
In your photograph
What do you know of cities so proud and bland?
Of white birch trees and stolen lands?
No one will craft you a compass.

The strong description create questions and thoughts.
"What do you know of cities so proud and bland?
Of white birch trees and stolen lands?"

You could buy a map, a history book, hire a guide throughout the city, and explore yourself . . . But nobody could truly tell you the unending effort put into the construction of cities so proud and tall. The passion felt by the builders and the people as they erect their own cities upwards. The journey it took to create the city itself, and the tale of how a concept became a thriving center of human attention . . .

"No one will craft you a compass." It has never been truer. Well done!

No one will craft my compass? Hey I paid 89.99 for this dang thing and I better get my money's worth! You promised me direction! Where's your manager I want to complain! Argh!
Oh wait, I realized I missed the fine print. "Compasses may or may not be metaphorical." Darn it.
This one is short but it is a very strong contender for best poem of June 12, 2014. So congrats there. Keep pumping out those awesome poems, Rain!
