the poor is not poor anymore

he has aspirations rich

he looks up to the sky everyday

he thanks God for what little he has

the poor is not really poor

his children now go to school

shining eyes filled with dreams

strong will to create a future

the poor truly is not poor

for he is kind and generous

it pains him if they are in pain

his readiness to be of any help

the poor sometimes seems rich to me

his eyes have no sign of greed

while he is growing every moment

he makes merry of his little wealth

the poor for sure is rich now

celebrating life as it comes

grasping the trueness of our existence

keep trying & to never give up

squeezing happiness from tiny little things

  1. This is such a beautiful verse.
    Poverty is generally reduced to just a social, political, or an economic term which devoids it of its human impact.
