La Ciudad

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 7:35 pm

When visiting a city

do so with respect.

 

In a city of which you do not reside

you are the guest of those who do.

 

A city is a living place of living people

and has been for many years.

 

Buildings were built for its citizens

to live and to function.

 

Every structure was not built with the satisfaction

to be everybody’s convenient tourist attraction.

 

Every stairway in every building may not be easiest to everyone

but everyday people who climb those stairs know how to get their daily task done.

 

Streets and transportation have

helped residents commute to every necessary location.

 

Things happen in a city as part of everyday life

as there are amazing happenings on some days and some of struggle and strife.

 

~Miguel
