Shopping cart boy: Poems of my life
Joshua’s voice matters. He speaks for so many who are not able to express their thoughts, their sorrows, their hopes.
Sixteen-year-old Joshua tells his life story in this poignant poetry collection.
He reflects on a childhood spent helping his mom search for bottles and cans from the confines of his shopping cart prison. Then, he pours out his grief at finding his mother dead one morning when he was twelve years old.
Join Joshua’s heart-breaking journey through several years of foster care and street life, and share his expressed hope that he has found a place to belong — in a new loving family with another mother.
We all need to hear his story.
