Skateboarding always made me feel in groove, totally chilled and high-wired at the same time
At the skate park, though, I felt none of that
I slapped my board down, kicked for speed and dropped into the middle of the bowl
Way too many people were zigzagging crazy patterns back and forth
It was madness
I was getting some nasty looks
But I couldn't leave, even though that was what those ugly staring faces said without one word
It was clear I was not liked
Was it the way I looked? Was it my hair? Or was it just me?
