street waif

street life:

‘i still hang around neither lost nor found
hear the lonely sound of music in the night
nights are always bright
that’s all that’s left for me
i play the street life
because there’s no place i can go
street life, it’s the only way i know
street life
and there’s a thousand cards to play
until you play your life away…’

streetlife is not easy
turning tricks is not easy
being a runaway girl on the streets is not easy

in los angeles, there is an excellent outreach organisation which rescues underage runaways from the streets and prostitution: children of the night. founded in 1979 by dr. lois lee, children of the night is a private, non-profit, tax-exempt organisation dedicated to assisting children between the ages of 11 and 17 who are forced to work as prostitutes on the streets for food and a place to sleep. all of their programs are provided with the support of private donations.
