The Throw Away Boy – A Poem by Ricky the Writer

Special Thanks to my Friend John for granting permission to post this poem.

He walks the streets at midnight,
The shadows are his friend,
He shivers from the cold,
And wishes for the end.

He wonders how he got here,
How life had gone so wrong,
Just a day ago they loved him,
He had a loving home.

His body now feels nothing,
He’s numb from the bitter cold,
How could this ever happen.
To someone twelve years old.

What choices have I got?
I have no place to stay?
I really don’t understand it,
All I did was say, “I’m gay.”

His tears had all but ended,
Decisions must be made.
“Do you think that guy will hurt me?
Do you think he’ll really pay?”

Perhaps he’ll see I’m hungry,
And keep me all the night.
I hope he’s not an angry guy,
The type who likes to fight.

They’re children made for hugging.
They’re not some human toy.
I wish I’d found him earlier,
He’s not a throw away boy.

        Discarded children are everyone’s responsibility.

GENERATION ONE : EMERGENCE

Coming SoonGENONELOGO

In the year 2115 the Earth went mad. Volcanic eruptions, tidal waves, massive pockets of radiation erupted upon it’s surface. Ten thousand children were placed in 10 biodomes across the US to wait out the cataclysm until the day when humans could reclaim the earth. But what awaits them and their guardian guides? Did anyone or anything survive from the old times? How will they live. This is our story. This is the story of GENERATION ONE.
