You awake into chaos, shower, rush breakfast and run. Chasing down a crowded bus, you gulp down a cold coffee and follow the herd to work. You gripe and dis the city, but all the while, love your life. Its rhythm, like a heartbeat, forms the pulse of the city, where though alone, you’re at home. Through veiled anonymity, shadows harbor peace of mind. And modern amenities make city strife all worthwhile. One can dine on chef’s cuisine or eat at a fast food place. Each rung up success’s ladder brings your dreams one step closer. Opportunity seldom ventures beyond city streets, and that’s why you choose to stay. (Free Verse) 05/15/2020

Sounds about right! City livers love the lifestyle. My son lived in the city for awhile.
