New York City High in the Sky

During my last visit to New York City
I realized that I never stopped to see that the
majority of its residents are very kind
with deep thoughts on their minds.
I stayed a block from the New World Center,
Sacred ground it is - you can’t help but feel the vibe,
that changed our way of life forever
that brought our whole nation to its knees with
an empathy that cannot be described.
I went on a tour to pay my respects.
Was nervous at first, thinking of our sad past in retrospect.
I was joyfully surprised to find my fearful thoughts were for naught
for they were swept out of my head
as I took in the panoramic beauty of New York City.
I noticed that most of the employees were young and
were relaxed, not nervous or fearful, or in a tizzy
They were upbeat and very busy.
As I took in the aerial view I realized
that the City has had more great days than bad.
With great food, Broadway shows, and shopping,
And with that, who can be sad?
New Yorkers keep the city alive with love, hope,
understanding, and growth. They don’t let the craziness
of a few stop their desire to make their city a wonder to view.
Their determination allows them to build and rebuild
and keep their city’s pulse beat fulfilled
Peace and hope is the message I see.
Thank You New York City!
