Teenage Runaway - Poem by Christina Sunrise

I get a call on my home phone,

It is Mary asking me to come along.

She says to meet her

at the bowling alley,

She’s pregnant and really needs me.

I hop on a bus with bag for one,

not realizing my adventure had just begun.

We stayed in an abandoned

building that very night,

We went through the

broken window with all our might.

Now the very next day,

We go shoplifting

at grocery store and Tarjay.

That’s French for Target if you didn’t know

now I digress, let’s move once more.

Time goes on and things come to an end,

I have to go home and leave my best friend.

It was worth it all the while,

Helping a friend who would

one day have a child.

She had her baby in the fall,

I came to the hospital when she did call.

Baby was so cute, as can be,

She was the first child of my friend Mary.

Helping Mary I never did regret,

As a true friend my loyalty was met.
