I am walking from house to house asking for a meal, a simple kind gesture. Is there something for me? With all my family gone I am nothing? Without them I do not have any connections or ties to this community. From now on my existense does not seem to matter to the people of this village. As winter arrives I can feel the skin tightening around my bones and my eyesight becoming blurred. This constant hunger and loneliness has turned me into a walking void, I am not worthy of even a glance. My own death is close now, I can feel it. The door to the other realm has opened but I will not enter. Here I shall stay until they dare to look upon what their rejection has turned me into.
