Steadily moving...
is the hustle and bustle
of a busy city life;
too hectic for some.
Violence and crime, constant.
Some adjust, and some do not.

Excellent, realistic poem, Edward. I live about sixty miles from Memphis, Tennessee--so glad I'm not closer! Janice

Memphis is a rough city, huh? Seems like quiet area where you live, Janice:-) Thanks for the lovely visit!

I am glad that I live a rural life but I hear on the news about shooting, stabbings, and some deaths and some are in critical condition everyday on the news in large cities in our state. Thanks for the honor of placing in your contest. Sara.. Thanks for the placement in your contest.
