Finale – What is the City… to me?

Image

So here I am
It was ever so brief.
Having explored various attractions
In order to show my belief.

Some say it’s brilliant,
An accurate opinion to yield,
For where else in Melbourne
Could you find a bigger battlefield?

A strongly endeared child,
Being suffocated by its parents, Society,
While some other, less authoritive relatives,
Use it to spread their notoriety.

The city cannot be left alone,
As time has repeatedly told.
If age is determined by how close one is to death,
Can the city ever become independant; old?

The city shows its generosity,
Providing everyone with sights, stores & travel.
Yet the various issues society throws upon the city
Sends many before the judge’s gavel.

Funny, though, how violence leads to such a conclusion,
Yet so many such cases are considered a pretense
When the prepetrators are a gang of badge-weilding workers
Who claim that force was within their right for arrest & defence.

Melbourne is surrounded by work and achievments,
Yet walking through can feel like a valley of apathy
When everyone has a destination to hurry off to
Their walking creates a monotonous symphony.

Despite all the error that is wrought out
The city does help put the world into perspective
With its collosal size & population
A lot of the problems are just subjective.

Because not everyone can appreciatte the exact same things
But everyone, in their lives, gets plagued with many a tribulation.
By going out and comparing the size of the city to one’s home,
It allows one to experience a realisation;

The entire world is much bigger
Than what we consider “our world”
Showing that, really, our everyday lives
Are just a teeny-tiny whirl

In the grander picture of life,
And there is so much else to see and experience,
Showing that the majority of us
Really have a strong sense of inexperience.

You’ve read my chiming and rhyming,
You’ve read about the city’s strife.
So, finally, “What is the City?”
It’s a microcosm… of Life.
