Misspent youth, reformed reformer
Charity founder, anti-slaver;
Wilberforce, humanitarian
William, humble Christian

The official prompt for Day 10 of Na/GloPoWriMo2017 is to write a poem that is a portrait of someone important to you – I have always found William Wilberforce to be an inspirational historical figure.
