My second chance
A place to start fresh
To wipe my slate clean.
Factory chimney’s belching thick, grey smoke
Staining the clear blue sky
Like my mistakes
Stain my past.
A patchwork quilt of poverty & wealth,
Suffering & success.
A rich tapestry of culture & individuality
Where unique is celebrated.
Cluster’s of store’s and cafe’s,
Run – down buildings and detailed mansions.
and crumbling ghettos.
Home to addiction and mental health,
Home to hope and faith in people.
A place for new beginnings,
