Poverty And Due To Poverty

My poverty
And it is my poverty
That is making me
Weaker and weaker
O my dear, it is
My hunger that is
Making me weaker
And weaker and weaker.

I am struggling for food
All days all nights
I have no potency to fight
Being poverty-stricken
I am unable to perform
Any activities including
Those that are harmful and envious
O my dear, believe me, I am always
Staying here without fear.

See me
My poverty is
Mocking at me
With so many diseases
And I am not in a position
To advance towards Truth
Though truth is here
In front of me at this time.

But my dear, as I am poor
I am in an advantage of hearing You
I am fortunate to receive Your blessing
I have no other engagement other than
Calling You day and nights
Due to my poverty I have got the real
Saintly persons as my guide and associate
And here I enjoy the purified form of life.

Peace or Poverty

Their skin soaks up the heat
Leaving it as black as the midnight sky,
Their eyes wide, white, pleading
Begging to the passersby.
They litter the street
Half naked bodies,
Red and colouring their feet
Searching for a entrance
A door out of the circle of poverty.

Poverty means destruction
Destruction means fear
Behind locked doors we sit in early evening
Too scared to see a black face
Terrified of black feet crossing the threshold.
But why be fearful of your slaves,
Those you whip and beat
Treating like the dirt from the doormat
Where you wipe your feet.

Role diversity causes poverty
Poverty destroys peace
But peace minus poverty
Means Equality should increase.
Sonali Shah

Poverty Doesn’t Laugh

Fill the rivers,
With poverty’s tears,
Only then will they be filled with innocent water.
The brick that fills poverty’s throat
Should be filled with heaven’s food
Not hell’s slaughter.
Poverty’s hands should not be,
As empty as our hearts.
Their feet should not feel the piercing sand
While we rot in cars.
Poverty’s teeth are famished
Because they bite empty air,
Our teeth are stuffed with arrogance
Until our blessings with be stripped bare

In the night of hell
When guilt will crawl upon us
The worms and snakes of our sins
Will pierce venom through our selfishness
And there we will stand
Bare of all our blessings
The naked truth for the world to see
Will be paraded across poverty’s eyes
But they will not laugh.
Mehreen Mujeeb

Poverty is not a great shame, but It's a shame upon those who're behind it, There are poor people everywhere because Of the greedy people who steal everything, Poor people are the products of failed Regimes that steal everything and everyone, Poverty talks loudly because it's huge Anytime, anywhere, and everywhere, When there people steal other people It means poverty will prevail and rule, Poverty is a bitter enemy that must be Fought with all might and with all weapons, The poor people suffer too much in life Because there are thieves who are stealing Them everyday, everywhere, and anywhere, The poor people's fault is the greedy people Who are not replenished with everything they take, and Poverty is a deadly poison that spreads everywhere.
