Wednesday morning at 5 oclock, as the day begins, Silently closing her bedroom door, Leaving the note that she would say more, She goes downstairs to the kitchen, clutching her handkerchief. Quietly turning the backdoor key, Stepping outside she is free. She (We gave her most of our lives) is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives) home. (We gave her everything money could buy) Shes leaving home after living alone for so many years. Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown, Picks up the letter thats lying there. Standing alone at the top of the stairs, She breaks down and cries to her husband, Daddy, our babys gone! Why would she treats us so thoughtlessly? How could she do this to me? She (We never thought of ourselves) is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves) home (We struggled hard all our lives to get buy) Shes leaning home after living alone for so many years. Friday morning at 9 oclock she is far away, Waiting to keep the appointment she made, Meeting a man from the motor trade. She (What did we do that was wrong?) is having (We didnt know it was wrong) fun. (Fun is the one thing money cant buy) Something inside that was always denied for so many years. Shes leaving home. Bye-Bye! Shes leaving home

The statistics show… Overall Runaway Statistics: One in seven kids between the ages of 10 and 18 will run away at some point. And there are 1 million to 3 million runaway and homeless kids living on the streets in the United States. In 1999, an estimated 1,682,900 youth had a runaway/thrownaway episode. Of these youth, 37 percent were missing from their caretakers (628,900) and 21 percent (357,600) were reported to authorities for purposes of locating them. Youth ages made up two-thirds of the youth with runaway/thrownaway episodes during the study year. Of the total runaway/thrownaway youth, an estimated 1,190,900 (71 percent) could have been endangered during their runaway/thrownaway episode by virtue of factors such as substance dependency, use of hard drugs, sexual or physical abuse, presence in a place where criminal activity was occurring, or because of their extremely young age (13 years old or younger) How long do they go for? Most of the teenagers who run away from home are usually only gone for a couple of days. They realize very quickly how hard it is to survive by themselves and return back home. Others, find ways to cope out on the street and will leave for extended periods of time. They may find that running away only compounds their situation since toughing it out on the street can put them in very dangerous situations, from violence and substance abuse to pregnancy and health problems/illnesses. Still, these situations may seem better to them than returning to their former problems at home. The 2005 National Runaway Switchboard statistics showed the following percentages of runaways and the time they spent living away from home: 50% (1-3 days) 20% (4-7 days) 13% (1-4 weeks) 8% ( 1-2 months) 4% (2-6 months) 5% (6+ months)
