The Day I Went to New York

The Day I Went to New York

 

Ever since I was really young, the one city I always wanted to go to was New York City. I don’t know if it was the movies or its enormous popularity, it simply spoke to me. I had a chance to visit my ultimate dream on 23rd February, 2017.

My words will never do justice to my experience.

 

 

I still remember being on that plane

With a galloping heart and wishful eyes

The longest plane ride it sure did feel

The day I went to New York

 

 

As I got off I couldn’t believe

My dream of all dreams came true

Like a race car, I darted into the city

The day I went to New York

 

 

The skyscrapers seemed larger than life

The crowd echoed of worldly symphony

Every person I somehow envied

The day I went to New York

 

 

The air smelled like its people

Mavericks with valuable diversity

Yet a common identity they all revealed

The day I went to New York

 

 

Every road, every turn I wanted to see

Each one posed as a raconteur

Reeking of contemporary amalgamated with history

The day I went to New York

 

 

Every cafe seemed like it was featured in a movie,

Every store, full of gripping tendencies

Central Park had its own tranquility

The day I went to New York

 

 

After sunset, began the perpetual party

From midnight Pizza runs to underground bars

Incandescing lights looked like a sheet of life

The day I went to New York

 

 

Bagels and gyros on every corner

Coffees to accompany the long walks

Anachronistic cuisines also passed by me

The day I went to New York

 

 

An electric city with an ethereal pulse

It flows with the current of passion

I succumbed to its vivacity

The day I went to New York

 

 

And now when I reminisce gleefully 

How good life had once been to be

I can’t help but simply smile about

The day I went to New York
