a city like none other, traveling faster than the speed of light
skyscrapers welcoming her inhabitants with outstretched arms,
beckoning opportunity at every corner.
her streets are paved with the footprints of strivers, dreamers, believers
who flourish among the perpetual sounds of taxis honking, builders constructing
and subway tracks screeching.
her neighborhoods churn with diversity, each defined by
its own culture, history, people, that it is nearly impossible
to exhaust yourself of its beauty.
a city like none other, ignited by the hustle,
emboldened by the freedom to just be.
a concrete oasis.
