A CHOICE

derelict buildings
old and broken,
worn out faces
just the same


painted walls
record a story
artistic flair
to taunt and blame


narrow streets
strewn with litter
broken pavements
under strain


eyes in search
of any answers
showing signs
of loss and pain


a choice to leave
a choice to stay
the past has gone
the present tense


a choice to leave
a choice to stay
a choice awaiting
common sense


I wave goodbye 
to boyhood streets
turn my back 
and walk away


I saw and smelled
much greener grass......

.......but I recall my roots
everyday
