Monologue Mania Day # 1569 Life Without by Janet S. Tiger (c) June  3, 2018         

                                 Life Without

                                       A monologue by Janet S. Tiger (c)  2018   all rights reserved 

             (Young man in his 20s comes out, he is in good shape)

I grew up without a lotta stuff.

Like, you know, food.  I mean I didn't starve.  Obviously, right?  Because I'm still here, ya know.  

It's just that, well, food, you can figure out how to get that.  You can always steal.  You learn to 
steal.  And you learn to that wasn't me, that was another kid who just ran away.

I saw him, but you missed him, and now you're blaming me, but it wasn't me.  I didn't do nothin
wrong, mister.  What?  What's my story?  You know my story....

Where do I live?  Down the end of the alley.  No, my Daddy's not around.  And my momma's...she's
sick.  That's what my gramma tells me.  My momma's away in the hospital, so I gotta help take of
my brothers and sisters.

Not my fault.  I did my homework without.... help......sorry it's not too I guess, I get to
keep goin without no high school without.

Without a way to figure out what's right and wrong.  Without love sometimes, cause my gramma 
died.  She was old.  She couldn't take care of alla us kids.

And without her, well, it was easy gettin into a gang.  My family.  But you know, without bein a
real family......I mean without nobody to stick up for you, tell you what to do, so you won't end up
where I am now.  

Life without......a lotta stuff.

         (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Life without .....parole.....

         (Exits to more time inside)
