On his own / At thirteen a runaway

After passing of his mom / One true love gone

Childhood ceased / No longer belonging

There was no love in their eyes / He was fit only for labor

He made his way to town / Because no one cared

He surprised an older cousin/ This cousin looked out for him

He lived hand to mouth / Till he was seventeen

Then he met my mom / he met a girl of similar fate

She had just come to town / She too was fleeing hardship

These two wanderers made a life together / She had found her anchor

Today is make up day and also a three for one day, also twist and turn day (prompt transfer day..Family Portrait was the prompt for Day 2 at NoPoWriMo).
This is for NaPoWriMo, A to Z Challenge ..I missed the letter …A, and Cleave Poem over at JaneDoughertyWrites.com. This is one of the coolest form of poetry I’ve come across. Thanks Jane:) for the introduction.

“A cleave poem is in two halves, two separate poems, one on the left, one on the right, but that make a single poem when you read them together. It sounds tricky…and it is. BUT there are no rhymes, no rhythms and no set length..”
