Homes - creative writitng.

Extracts from this document...


Home It's not fair. Every kid seems to have a home. Every kid except me that is. Thrown out of our council flat after Mum died, we've been living on the streets ever since. I had never imagined my life like this, and was sure I would be dead by now when we first started 'roughing it'. I would be if it hadn't have been for Evan. Evan is my 19 year-old brother, and a great one at that! He's been like a father to me. My real dad left my mom when I was just two weeks old, so Evan had to help Mum to bring me up. I've never actually met my real dad since he left. He's probably living a high-quality life, doing what he wants, when he wants. ...read more.

I have learned to live my life to the full, and I am truly thankful to my brother who has brought me up, cared for me, made sure I have always had enough to eat - even if it means that he goes hungry for a day or two. I owe everything to Evan. There is one thing that I would like everyone who is living a better life than me to know, and that is that not all homeless people are what people portray us to be. In our case, Evan and I have tried to help ourselves - we've been round most child support agencies, but no one is interested. How are we supposed to live a better life when no one wants to know? I'd love to have a proper home, but until we can find a way in which we can get back on our feet, my home is on the streets. ?? ?? ?? ?? Nadine Cowan 10/25/2007 ...read more.
