Bustle of the District
where people rush around in suits.
So much to do, work hard, play hard, focus and accomplish a lot.
with rolling hills
and space to hear yourself think.
Where the focus is family
St. Louis, the island, the small town city mutation.
Comfortable, but not safe downtown.
Diverse, but not progressive.
The distance is difficult.
Far from family and friends.
But it’s freedom.
Freedom from memories that hold like quicksand.
Freedom from that box of other peoples’ expectations.
A new perspective, a chance to find me outside of them.
