Life on the streets was hard. Some days, in order to eat, I had to steal food or even eat from people’s leftover trash. Often times, I was picked up by the police and thrown into jail where diseases and other illnesses were common. I saw society as a group of people that disregard and forget about children without homes - children like me.
I had to find money to pay for movies, drugs and sex. So I had to rob people. I cannot recall how many times I was arrested and taken to jail. My peers and the police, nobody could feel pity for me, they hit me as if I was a venomous snake to kill.
