A Poem For All The Small Towns

December 3, 2020


A small town, not the heart of a city
But the heart of the world for a child
Lakes of cobalt and and trees so pretty
In the south of New Zealand where the weather is mild 

Underneath lie the secrets, yet to be told
Where we only see the surface of the dam 
For some being young, for some growing old 
Or just buying coffee is the plan

Then we will return 
To the hearts of big cities 
Where university students learn 
Of things in midsummer pretty 

Now we all wonder, of things we don't know
Where the heart of the world beats slowly 
Near a coffee shop and the place where post goes 
And even the criminals aren't lowly 

But past the car drives 
In the blink of an eye
The mountains it climbs 
And forgets what is wise

For children, in it's heart
A bump in the road is a mountain 
The distance keeping apart 
The world from it's start 
Wow. I actually just wrote one of my best poems at nearly eleven o'clock at night.

    Woah! Really nice, I am a little bit in love with how you knit these words together. As a small-town person, I think you've done a beautiful job of encapsulating what the experience is like. I only wish my small town had lakes and mountains as inspiring as yours!

    This is absolutely beautiful. I have had the luck to grow ip in one of these small towns but still know how much better it is then living in the city as a child. Amazing!
