Ode To Brooklyn, New York
written by: Anne G
Your beauty and charm are alive in your folks who bring life to your neighborhoods, houses and parks. The renewal of Brooklyn is restoring it’s past, giving way to a future it will always outlast. In all of my wanderings and throughout all the years I will never forget you, for my heart remains here.
My inspiration for this piece was the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and the wonderful transformation Brooklyn is undergoing. I remember my childhood and teenage years with great fondness. Brooklyn was truly a magical place to grow up in.
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!
