Concrete Jungle

You say concrete jungle? I've never been near
Only tall grasses and green fields here
This delightful place you speak of is unfamiliar to me
It's a place I'd someday like to be

They say it's a place where dreams are born and even torn,
Torn apart and never spoken of again
If it so happens to me,  my journey must not end
I'll skip home down south where my heart can mend
And come back stronger to challenge this concrete jungle again

    Don't rush to leave the tall grasses and green fields. Not a bad place to make a life. We seem to always want the opposite of what we are blessed with.

    Hello, Ashley, that concrete jungle sounds to break or get in to,, sounds like a grassy protecting itself from the outside world. A place where if you get in all life will be a challenge again and again,, love your poem.. hugs,,pd
