Runaways: "why are these girls here?"

Most runaways are girls. Why are these girls here? They may be here because they have been victimized or abused. Most girls who have been victimized fear the shame that will be brought upon them and their families, so they keep it a secret or runaway. Many sad stories have been told about girls running away because they were abused and raped. So what can we do to help them? How can we help them? How can we stop the abuse and rapes?

Just be you

Every where I go
Every where I look
I always see
All group
With only one race
Has so much hate
On each other
Never see
Any peace
In this world
It’s always got to be
White on that side
Black over that side
Asian on that side
And the other
Got to be on some other side
No love
Just hate
No hug
Because of different race
No tears
Because no one care
Just death
Because everyone want to be on the top
Don’t try to be stupid
Being races
On your own kind
And on others
Because you never
Went through the things
That they already went through
It’s just your point of view
Not theirs
Show some love
Show some respect
Then you’ll understand
Their race and culture
And they will too learn
Something from you
Become one group
Don’t be races like other crews
Just be you
Then you’ll understand the truth

Better

When I was born and came to be,
I came to this world and started to pee,
I started out young like everyone,
When I grew up and tried try my best,
My best to be better,
Better than everyone,
Everyone I knew,
I knew how to be better,
Better than my folks,
My folks who made me,
Made me who I am today,
Today I am the person I am,
Every single day,
Every single day trying to be better,
Better than myself,
Then I lost my mind,
I didn’t know what to do where to be how to see,
To see my way through the difficulties,
The difficulties of my life,
My life which I spend time,
Time to get better so I can pass school,
Pass school there is a gate,
A gate that tell you who you are,
You are what you wanted to be,
All you gotta do is make the right choice,
The choice to be who you want to be………………….

Marijuana & Meth

DRAWN BY NEEDLE

by Tang

I had my first child when I was 16. By the time my girls were 9 and 10 years old, I had started using meth. First I was snorting, smoking and drawn, but by this time I was allowing someone else or myself to stick a needle in my arm.
