Such bravery, at six years old
was the boy with bitteríd face.
Who stepped outside into the cold
with hopes to leave behind this place.

A backpack with a teddy bear
some crackers and his favorite coat
were all he needed to get there,
or at least that's what he wrote.

I'll show them he stomped of griping
they'll miss me when Iím not here.
Mom with no face for the wiping.
Dad with no chore helper near.

Who needs em, he said, with insecure tone
as he stood three houses down the street.
I can live fine here on my own
with nobody 'round to step on my feet.

Nobody there to kiss me goodnight
nobody around when Iím feeling blue
nobody to leave on a little night light
With nobody whatís anybody to do!!

and so he turned quickly, from the world so vast
some other time, this great place he'd roam
And smiling, he walked to that place twice as fast,
that one place that he and his family called home.

Precious this is indeed! Aww, it's a scary world out there! Glad he chose the comforts and love of home.

I'm smiling here. My boys ran away one time, they made it about a block before they turned around
