    Still Here.

    As a kid, I used to pack up this tiny pink suitcase. I filled it with my favorite clothes and toys, and I would push it out onto the roof when my mom and dad were fighting. I used to sit up there with that suitcase, dreaming about where I could run off to. Sometimes I would...

    things that can make you happier,

    theirs lots of things to do out there. But don't do drugs! Haha even though that can probably make you happy! But just don't! I bless everyone to have happier lives, and to be much creative! We need all kinds of people in this world!

    I want to run away but I want a group of people

    to go with. At the moment I don't have really anywhere to go, but I feel that in a group it would be better because we could all stick together. I live in England, South west.

    I started thinking about running away

    when my grandma (that I live with) and my aunt would get into arguments. Tearing me and my cousins apart, who i was close to. The time I spent away from my cousins made me start thinking about running away with them. I was about 11. But I thought everything through. I had a plan...
