Good Bye! City! ! - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

Good bye to thee city,
I have had enough of your
Dance floor, dancing girls,
Call girls, big arcades,
Promenades, stadiums,
Theatres, megamalls,
Fast luxury cars, executives,
Bosses, broad avenues,
Big parks, and so many
Other you offered to me.

Goodbye to you and your
Busy life, I am returning
To my lovely native village
Where friends are not
Greedy, jealous, and bossing
Over or slips a meaningless
Smile on their plain faces.

Here i will live in peace,
With loving friends near
My old school reminiscing
The hazardous life you gave
To me, which is not easy
To leave, but the nature
Will change my mind
And let me live in love,
With no regrets to leave behind.
