NaPoWriMo, Day 20

Today’s prompt at ReadWritePoem is to write about your hero.

Little Match Girl Lost

little match girl lost
in an unsparing world

next morning
townsfolk spoke of waste
meaning your life
with no purpose
and your death
another corpse

little match girl lost
in an unsparing world

I know better
I, too, struggle

little match girl lost
in an unsparing world

belief requires strength
warmth requires belief

little match girl lost
in an unsparing world
