On exploring any urban city sprawl, I see not only the manipulative hands of progress but also the lost natural potential. Life in any big city is as full of delight and excitement as it is of despondent banality. I try to capture this thought within these following words..
Urban sprawl, grey concrete maze,
In walls loom progress, still we see..
Depravity cascade, slipping from night into the day.
In all that we’ve gained from towers,
Heightened, monolithic truths,
Have we lost our way my friends?
What are we to do?
