Better Than Nothing by D.D. 💫 #wisewords #StarfishClub #ThriveTogether #poem #poetry #WritingCommunity @CoffeeandaChat1

My boots are too big for me Mama

They hurt my feet, and chaff my legs.

They’re too big for me Mama
But they’re better than nothing.
My dress is too big for me Mama
It drowns my body and scratches my skin.

It’s too big for me Mama
But it’s better than nothing.
There’s not much food for me Mama

Work is hard, and the days are long

There is little rest , or time to sleep

But it’s better than nothing.
I think I felt you next to me Mama,
As I lay on the straw
On the stone floor last night
I felt your warmth against my frozen skin Dreams and memories of 4 years swam in I woke up without you Mama
But it was better than nothing.
BETTER THAN NOTHING
