I know how hard it may be for a teen to feel unwanted and unloved and lonely. I, when I was 9 ran away. I packed everything in a duffle bag and left the city. I ran all the way to Chesapeake but after a day realized that I couldn't make it on my own. I was gone for 3 days before I finally made it home. I had completely planned my life away from home. I had wrote a note and stuck it on the door for my brother and mom to find when they got home. I grabbed everything I could fit in a duffle bag and all of my money and just left. Of course I hadn't planned on how to get more money when I had spent it all on food and bottles of water, but I had figured everything else out. My mom sent out a search party for me and I hid whenever I saw a policeman. I ran away because we had just moved from my comfortable home in West Virginia. I was going to try to make it back to my old house, but I never made it to the interstate before I wanted to go back home. My mom works late hours and my dad doesn't live with us anymore. That was one of the reasons that we moved. I was also still mad because of their divorce, as another reason and I thought that if I ran away, they would team up to find me and they would realize how good of a partnership they had. That plan completely backfired on me. They hit off on a heated display of whose fault it was that I was left alone long enough.:
