Potential for Growth by Sya Potential for Growth by Sya
there is potential for growth
but not in this city

i have roots here
i know these streets
i know these people
their roots tangle with mine

but we all dream of leaving
this pit of economic death
for a much more prosperous land
a place that is safe and quiet and green

yes, there is potential for growth
but not in this city


********************
Acrylic on 30x40 canvas. No sketching, I just started painting with an idea. I painted this right before we moved from Flint, MI to Cincinnati, OH. This is a photo, it lost some of the lightness at the top thanks to my camera. Sold - It has found a good home.

I absolutely love this piece and your poem is so on point. I was born and raised in New York City. The city has gotten so expensive I had to move to Jersey when I finally moved out of the house. I could not afford to live alone in NYC unless i wanted to live in the outer city limits areas. sigh... Part of me wants to move even farther away because Northern NJ and South Conn are considered part of the NYC metropolitan area.
