The Human Aspect of Sephton

My reality was the streets and my truth of survival was to be feared, but after decades on the street my inner loneliness started to get difficult to battle. Growing up in a dysfunctional home I seeked elsewhere for the needs and role models I lacked. I quickly felt at home with the older boys and before I knew it I ran away and started my full-time street life. Over the years I worked my way up the streets to the point where I felt we were living in a different reality, completely cut off from normal life in London.
