"Alone" by Clayton, 17 | Badlands National Park
Like me myself, running freely,
People ask me why I walk these streets, it’s cuz I don’t have a home,
but now it’s time for me to put my heart in this poem,
because I’m sick of being lost and always on the roam,
I miss being with my family and not all alone,
I try to stay connected but nobody answers the phone,
the day they pick up my smile will be shown,
because that’s the day I will start to feel not so alone.
About Clayton: "My name is Clayton. I am a young Native American from Lac Court Oreilles, WI. I use to be a menace to my society. But now that I’m taking pictures, my chance for success is much greater because I can help my community out and show the world anyone can change. I hope that when others see my work it can inspire them to change and let them know that there is a better life out there for them then hanging in the streets. My plan for the future is to successfully finish Northwest Passage and then teach others the right path in life."
