Life Changes Street
I bike to work now that I am working in town.
Everyday I bike down the street that I used to travel down when going to school; high school and intermediate. I experienced my first kiss down that street, my first fight. I felt I owned that street. I felt it went on forever. In the eternity that I spent at high school; it went on forever.
Now, it is empty by 5 o'clock and much, much smaller than I remember. The pavement is tired and the fence along the field is in need of a paint. I was the king of that street for 7 years. And now, coming up 12 years on, it is just a street.
