Feral. He's a dirty little kid small and wiry, hair all matted and dull. Covered in scabs, no shoes on his feet. Poor little chap. Looks like he has just crawled from under a hedge. Gone feral, that's what's happened to him. Left to his own devices a scavenger he's become. Feeding off other peoples rubbish. His clothes are just rags, he needs a good bath, and a hot meal. He's a feral child, gone wild, untamed, no one to take care of him. Antony Slausen. 07/08/2018.

I can relate to this in so many ways; I sometimes look like this, but have no idea what it feels like. I see this too, and it is the truth in a world that tries not to see.
