Ode to Uptown Stories

There’s a piece of happiness,
that hides itself in every work of
art and literature.
If you dig
deep enough,
then even you can find it
and discover
it’s true embellishment.
To fly,
to soar,
to reach places so unexpected
no one but you
understands it.
therefore you shall.
                                                                                                                      flourish
so reach and
weep
resembling
the one
who has dropped
tears
over
the anthology
and you,
like Shakespeare.
And when you know your time is up
When you hear the broom
caressing the floor
you once
placed your feet on
you know
that Uptown Stories
taught you how,
                                                                                                                    how to write.
