If you were a city would you want to live there?
Would there be parks and trees and wide open spaces for reflection.
Is there just enough comfort to feel safe
And enough discomfort to inspire change?
Is there a hospital where you can check in when you fall
Are their planners and visionaries designing the city’s layout preparing for every eventuality
making sure that the Sun gets in.
Are there places to swim and sing and play drums
Where children can laugh out loud
Is there an annual celebration of your greatness
Praising your beauty
Is there music on every corner.
Is there a storyteller reminding you of battles lost and won
Giving you the strength and courage to include everyone.
Would I want to live in your city?
And Would I want to live in mine?
