the new york situation

I am a new yorker
from afar
I grew up in new york
with t.v. stars
All the cop shows
and broadway affairs
Make us new yorkers
even though we're not there
We see the devastation
and offer our prayers
We want you to remember
No matter what God is there
You've always been rude
but now its time to be kind
An opportunity to love
before the end of time

    The media certainly makes the world a smaller place and we are all neighbors here. I truly enjoyed this write!

    What a wonderful message--show love in times of distress-the golden rule applies. Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Years.

    Big cities always seem to grind you into nothing as you are one of so many. Does kindness exist in a city? I suppose it does but in small quiet places. This sounds kind of sad.

    I used to visit a good friend while i was in college. New York in one of those places you with someone who lives there and can navigate the subways. Lovely poem.

    Enjoyed reading your creative work...Did I glean from this that you no longer live in New York?...It is sad what has happened in that area of our country...Sara
