Treasure Island

Philip Carter

(London)

Alone On The Streets


Hiding in the shadows
Not sure who is a friend
Keeping well clear of strangers
And false messages their smiles send
Leaving home long ago
To escape from the abuse
Though I told my family
It wasn't any use
So here I am out on the street
Scared and all alone
With no one I can turn to
No chance to use a phone
People who walk by me
Look on with some disgust
And in the eyes of others
You see a sexual lust
So I will keep moving
To stay out of harms way
And hope that I will still be here
To see another day.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
