Another Night in the City

Looking in the mirror 
   One becomes fearful 
   of the ravages of the years
     The city is full of dangers which ages inhabitants
  But the one thing you can be sure of 
is that the beauty of 
the urban landscape 
can bring joy 
One who has never 
    lived in the heart of the metropolis 
   does not realize this 
The feeling one gets in the 
  hustling crowds and the thousands of 
shops and eateries 
   dazzling lights
and thousands of new faces 
is really "far out"

    it's hard to explain the lure of the city to a non-urbanite, but to a city gal like me, you've done a fine job of capturing it here...
