Beijing : Poem of Home

May 06, 2020


Star Chen

To people who were born in the countryside, Beijing is the city where dreams come true and money rolls in.

Morning,

Sparrows are cheering the sunlight. Kids are playing down the street. People are standing around two old man playing chess. A day in Beijing has just begun.

Noon,

Beijing is the new capital, the economy will be better there! People are cheering for their future, leaving their hometowns, and coming to Beijing. New houses were built, but five years later, people can’t afford it anymore.

Afternoon,

Cats are taking their nap, but noises from the construction won’t let them. It is just another flyover, but people cannot find their way home anymore.
