Concrete Jungle

I must get away...

Dark clouds hoover,

In between walls ghosts roam.

Street meets street as I walk to and fro,

Tall buildings blocking the sun. 

Rain falls and it gets darker,

And this is the existence I find my self in.

Cabs honk as they pass,

Trailing them leaves as dead as I am inside.

In my garden is where I feel alive,

Oh from all the concrete around me.

Now for sure I know I was meant for soil, sprawling land, and blooming flowers. And that's why I am moving away!
