The Daily Prompt

A child sleeping on the steps of somewhere unknown.
With his head laid on a pillow, hoping that the night won’t be so cold.
He’s surrounded by a place where happiness doesn’t seem to reside.
But he seems to make it okay as he holds that pillow for dear life.
While children around the world sleep in their beds with night lights illuminating their rooms; one can’t simply imagine a little child like all the others, sleep in a place where darkness looms.
& even though he might not have it all, he’s sprawled out on that floor with nothing but dreams formulating in his corridor, ready to roam.
For he dreams of the day he gets to walk through the doors of a place he’ll get to call home.
