#NaPoWriMo -Day 14 ~ San San #Lost

The optional prompt at NaPoWriMo today was to write a san san. For a description of this form of poetry click here.

Roaming through the dark streets, the lost girl

Scampers between the street lamps, on the sidewalks and in the alleys

Looking for a way back home, only if she could remember what a home is

She wanders each night, wondering each time darkness falls how her story will unfurl

Why must she keep walking these streets, why did her family keep tallies?

Each time some preordained goal wasn’t reached home grew further away

A talented artist she was, but they only cared that at the family business she was no whiz

Once she opened her eyes and realized that home was within, she was well on her way.
