When the morning sunrise shows itself

I watch as the city wakes and begins the day

As I walk along, I gaze,

I gaze at our beautiful sparkling sky

And I cringe as I notice the factories,

The factories billow smoke from its stacks

I walk along until I can see the city no longer

I look upon, and shed a tear

Our sparkling river is no longer

I run away before I can cry

But no matter how hard I try,

I cannot escape the destroying city.

My nose wrinkles, as I smell the pungent air

I run until I reach the forest

I watch the animals as the run away

And all I can think is, “you can’t blame them.”

As the city sleeps

My thoughts wander

As I wait for a better day
