In the City of Angels

Angelic angels gather around
Where hope and opportunity could be found
“La La Land” might be idiomatic
But nothing is truly automatic
For the willpower of perseverance
Can bring The City of Angels
Into existence
Because when gracious people gather
Unification is what really matters


Blooming flower
Royal elegance
Sheer opulence
Blending fiery passion
With soothing eloquence
For violence is mostly
While compassion
Can make life more pliable


Meeting of the minds
Intellectual stimulation
Challenging the status quo
As well as one another
For the people
That people meet
Really do impact each other
And the surrounding society
Via chance encounters


Some cannot speak
Nor express themselves
Yet communication
Can benefit the population
If people choose
To share with the world
Who they were meant to be
As part of destiny
No matter what fate
Would come about
In attempts to prevent


Sleeping Beauty
Briar Rose
Pink and blue
Regal royal
Beautifully loyal
Warm voice
Golden sunshine
Happiness comes
With colorful iridescence
In the Northern Lights
And all that permeates
