In the City

In the city, I saw promise
Back then when I was younger.
Looked upon it with naive eyes
And saw the Hope Diamond.

She shined for miles
As I looked out a car window,
Wheels moving on the highway-
Lights dazzling in the distance.

And I finally got my bite
But it left a bitter taste
Amid the barrage of noise
And cascade of choices.

I realized my voice was not loud
Enough for an endless sea of sound.
