BROOKLYN, OH BROOKLYN
From the Verrazano to the Brooklyn Bridge
Through the Ridge and up the Slope
Diverse personalities in every nook
Streets of Brooklyn are “off the hook”
From Coney Island to the Navy Yard
Local churches, restaurants and museums
Amazing all people from every scene,
So enticing on the movie screens
Schools,sports and entertainment abound
The people of Brooklyn create and astound
Showing the world its undying glory
Brooklyn, oh Brooklyn, you are my life’s story
Leaving your streets to explore other places
Shadows of memories tracing empty spaces in my heart
For here lies the key to my home
Brooklyn, oh Brooklyn from you I cannot part
I hope you will forgive me, today I felt an overwhelming sense of sadness from the thoughts that I may soon need to leave the borough of my birth. My present circumstances is making it harder and harder to live here and be financially stable. Not quite sure about the definite plan as yet, but I know there needs to be one very soon. How will I ever be able to break my own heart? Life is not always as we planned nor does change always come with joyful challenges. For now, though, its just a jumble of thoughts.
And that is the Way I See It here in Brooklyn!
As an average, American born woman I’ve decided to write and share my thoughts and beliefs in a blog. This blog will be very simple and hopefully click with the rest of the people out there, who feel as I do, but just can’t express it with words, on a variety of subjects.
I’m not a researcher. I’m not a scholar. I’m not anything other than an average American who has opinions about a multitude of issues and I’m tired of holding them inside myself and bending the ears of my family and close personal friends. I’m not claiming I’ll always get it “right”. I’m not claiming any political or religious affiliations. What I am claiming is my privilege as an American to exude free speech. I will be honest, straightforward and probably extremely wordy. At times I may share my own photos or my own recipes or just my own gripes, but most times I will attempt to share how my peers feel about current issues and why my generation of friends and acquaintances can’t grasp society’s lack of common sense today.
I may unintentionally offend people, I will absolutely make mistakes and errors because I am first and foremost a human being and we all know no one is perfect. I most likely will never have facts and figures and I mean NEVER. This blog will totally express how I see things and I expect there will be plenty of counter opinions and possible argumentative theories about what I will express so I will respect that and accept it as my risk for writing this blog. Just having the option in this great country of ours to create a blog, is to me a privilege I would defend to the end!
Won’t you tell me what you think?
