Vicky Ramsey (aged 13)
Alloa, Scotland
2004

I am all alone outside in the rain
My feelings are buzzing with all my pain,
My mum tried to help me she could only but try
But I sit here now, all I do is cry.

In the shop doorway is where I now stay
Because I walked out and ran away
I have left my family all alone at home
So now I just sit here cold and alone

I miss my family all so very much
I wish I had only kept in touch
When I was at home all I done was take
That now for me was a big mistake

My tummy is empty I have nothing to eat
As I just sit here on this hard, wet seat
I made the wrong choice to be all on my own
I should have stayed in my warm cosy home
