Streetwise Kid - Poem by Della Perry

The streetwise kid
It's a way of life
A cold childhood
Cares for himself
No other choice
He's good at it in fact.
Strong and stalwart
Rarely scared
Angry sometimes
But it is hidden well.
You see the bond is forever
Even through the hard times
Through adversity
He still loves
He still has compassion
He'll survive
The streetwise kid.
