Street of Dreams

Man walking alone at night in the city

He’d come in the summer seeking stardom and excitement.

He found a job in a diner on the night shift.

It was a cold Christmas and he locked up for the last time, a train ticket home in his pocket.

  1. Oh, so sad. Life in the big city searching for stardom is certainly one not made to be an easy thing to accomplish.
    Well written, Paula.

  2. That’s how many ambitious people end up. A reality but sad end to his dreams.
