Go To New York City

Broken hearted, with a wallet that could break the bank, and a soul that no longer feels complete, please, go to New York City.

Pack your bags, leave memories from the past behind, and start a new life.
Book a one way flight, or drive through the night.

Phone away in your pocket, and glance straight ahead,
walk around aimlessly on a cool spring night, thinking of the words you never said.

Lost in the city lights,
Now’s the time to start a new plight; a second chance to get things right.

Be guided by the famous landmarks,
With hopes for a new perspective and change of heart.

Walk across the whole damn city to find yourself again.
Start in downtown Manhattan.

From Tribeca and the World Trade Center,
Through Battery Park, food in hand from a street vendor.

Walk along Water Street,
Where men and women on Wall Street talk business the first time they meet.

Step foot on the Brooklyn Bridge,
A late summer’s night, couples hand in hand, like a movie image.

Pass the city’s Chambers until you end up in Chinatown,
Walk down Canal, go to Little Italy and enjoy a glass of the finest wine around.

Pack up your belongings and hit the road once more,
Alone with your thoughts, you realize you are stronger now than months before.

Summer is ending as you approach fall,
But for now, people dance through the night at Webster Hall.

On your walk, you commence once more,
Washington Square Park, Greenwich Village, and Chelsea are sites to adore.

You pass designer stores on Madison Avenue along the way,
Fall is here, and soon you find yourself at the Macy’s Day Parade.

But like leaves, your find that your colors have changed,
Winter is approaching, and though it’s getting cold, you can’t complain.

For those who broke you, don’t have the power to keep you broken,
New beginnings and endings alike, at Penn Station, with departing trips to Jersey City and Hoboken.

Onward you go, eager to see the rest of the city,
Time Square’s lights are blinding, but they sure are pretty.

You add a pep in your stride,
Eager to see the rest of the Upper West Side.

Lexington and Central Park,
Time has changed you, and left it’s true mark.

And in comes the New Year,
You’ve grown so much, you’re wiser now, there’s nothing left to fear.

Go to New York City.
Broken hearted, with a wallet that could break the bank, and a soul that no longer feels complete, please, go to New York City.

Pack your bags, leave memories behind from the past, and start over your life,
Book a one way flight, or drive through the night. TC mark
