I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon for todays writing prompt. The writing prompt for today was “My Hero.” While I could think of so many people to address, I chose a different route.
You’ve taught me hunger; the value of a meal.
You’ve taught me enough; I have what I need.
I’ve learned not to settle; I’ve options, and choices.
You’ve taught the value a dollar brings; budgeting, spending within my means.
You’ve taught me survival; I’ve made it through the worst.
You’ve taught me to dream; if I had it all I’d of lost sight.
You’ve strengthened me; I’ve overcome.
You’re close to many; you’ve known them intimately.
You’re the face of many, poverty.
