Living On Oak Road


Living on Oak Road

When I think of the sounds, sights, and smells of my house on Oak Road I get homesick. It
makes me want to go back to the familiar area. My family and I moved here when I was just
one year old. It was a small country town with only one store on the corner with clean air
and very few cars on the road. We never had any worries as we walked to the corner store.
The town always seemed very quiet and undisturbed.


As times have changed and I am now eighteen years old, the small country town has been
taken over. It has become a small city. Now fast food chains, hardware stores, drugstores,
and small shopping centers, have buried the small country store six feet under. The air is
no longer clean because of the hundreds and thousands of cars driving down Oak Road
everyday. Another big change in the old country town is the noise. In the old days, you
could walk outside and hear all the different sounds of the birds and or animals. You may
even hear other children playing on their junglegyms. Every once in a while you could hear
a few cars going by, where as in the present you will hear a few hundred cars in a few
hours. Also you will hear the sounds of construction that seems to be happening everyday.
You will also often hear the sounds of police and fire sirens racing down the road.
