This is actually quite interesting. I enjoyed reading it. Growing up in New York and riding the subways to work, I would often see performers, but I never gave them much thought. Assuming this is factual, I wish you all the best.
This is true? That's a lot to experience so young.
Regarding the writing, you have a couple of spelling errors (decision and sane). Bad spelling or grammar detracts from the story.)
However, the story is intense and absorbing.
Keep writing to express yourself.
Very interesting. I had heard about the statue to Chief Crazy Horse but had forgotten about it. I will have to read more about it, and If I ever make the trip to South Dakota I will make sure to visit it. Thank you.
I like this. There's all the anxiety and stress - that's clear. But I especially like how you constructed the second and third verses from the lines of the first, and carry the last line along, emphasizing the theme. Nice.
