Welcome to Ben Westwood’s collection of 60 true-story poems – ‘Poems from a runaway’. It’s his story of being a teenager in care, and a frequent runaway from the west midlands (UK). Follow him on a journey from ten years old, wandering from town to town before eventually at the age of twelve, finding himself in the east end of London with drug addicts and prostitutes.
A year later he was to be sleeping rough in London’s West end, meeting celebrities and all sorts of folk.
It’s a story with many tragedies, but also comedic moments. Choices that would have only been made with a youngsters thinking, and angels along the way.
Predators, friends, heart-warming times and dangerous moments. Hustles, wind-ups and the way young people entertain themselves along the way. Some moments in life that some may never had knew existed
