Sonnet: The Magic of Poverty

A birth in poverty is luck supreme!
A death in poverty, a great blessing;
A life of poverty is rare a dream;
Achievements great, stark poverty can bring.

’Tis poverty that goads nations do feats;
’Tis poverty that stimulates scientists;
In everything, poverty, wealth just beats;
The greatest men were in poverty’s lists.

And poverty lessens our worries much;
Account to God will be much easier;
Poverty gives the saint a divine touch;
In poverty, poets can fly higher!

Poverty helps to shun worldly pleasures;
A soul in poverty, Heaven allures.

Poverty

The entity that is dreaded by all but ever present everywhere, a non-respecter of age,
Poverty does not have regard for race, nor nationality, as it is present in every part of the globe,
Poverty breeds diseases, it has siblings like misery, ignorance, illiteracy, dejection, rejection, degradation, agony,
Poverty means the difference between haves and have-nots, the rich and the poor, the upper and the lower class,
Poverty is a quick destroyer of human as it makes people ‘sell' lots of things including conscience, and destroys self-esteem,

Poverty, what a curse that has a spectrum; from mild, relative, to abject poverty,
Poverty is a monster that destroys families, communities and societies, always a bad commodity in the market place,
Poverty determines how you get treated by the society, and you are loathed for your status,
Poverty gets written all over you once you are in the lower class, caste system in every society is a celebration and endorsement of poverty as social classification,
Some societies believe you are born into poverty and you should be in poverty for life, please ask who is a 'Dalit' in Asia,
Poverty makes people call you 'Church rat', the basics of everyday living become luxuries to the poor,
Poverty robs you of dignity, it robs you of a chance to be heard, as ‘ no good ideas come from the poor',

Poverty in father, poverty in mother, definitely rubs off on the children, poverty is a disease difficult to cure,
Poverty is a giant monster that can only be tamed by dedicated hard-work, prayers as Jabez did, and may seem un-surmountable, may be intimidating, but can be defeated,
Every mother discusses poverty with her kids, how terrible and merciless of a character is poverty,
Poverty is the character every father tells its fairy tale and the importance of using education as weapon to attack it,
Poverty an equal opportunity degrader of a person, multiple acronyms have been given to poverty in every culture and society.

Poverty In The 21st Century

It's the 21st century
The media displays it day and night,
Poverty.
Poverty across the globe lies
Poverty cries out from the belly of little boys
Little girls, parents too
Desperately searching for food,
Shelter, clothing, for love,
Companion, for attention
Those with plenty, refuse
To amend, a world haunted by
Poverty.

Is poverty affecting the rich?
Are their poverty the same
As the poor in financial constrains?
For they, too, poverty of love
I see poverty in the learned
I see poverty in those whose
Selfish acts are destroying society.
I see poverty in all level of humanity

The world is still an imperfect place
Yet life is still beautiful, the wind
Blows, we see it not, give thanks
For what you possess, now go,
Help if you can along the way,
Help to eradicate poverty
In your surrounding, widen
Your boundary across your
Country, to nations of the world.

Help to fight poverty, now!

Wings

If I have only one wish
to be granted
that is
to escape from poverty
and fly away
from it.

If I have only one wish
that is,
to escape from poverty
Poverty that drains my energy
Poverty that punishes my family
I will make my wings,
My two huge wings
and fly away from it.

Yes, if I have only one wish
that is
to escape from poverty.
Though I think
I really can't escape this
life-sucking poverty
I guess that the only way out
is the only way in.
And my wings
My two huge wings
is now a childhood irrelevant idea
wings that can't fly
far, far away
from it.

I f I have only one wish
to be granted
Yes, Please!
I want to escape poverty
Poverty that empties my reserved energy
Poverty that stains my family
Poverty that attached me
to a lot of
humiliations and fears and
insecurities.
Yes, Please.

I have collected so much
blood and
shed a lot of tears
Because I want to escape poverty
and fly away from it.
But God didn't make it possible
My wings
My two huge wings
God didn't help me
construct these wings
and escape from
Poverty
and fly away
from it.

But now
the sky is clear
and I can see from
My two eyes
my two huge eyes
God didn't betray me
There's a lesson that can be
learned from poverty.
All this life you shouldn't
runaway
and 'escape from poverty
and fly away
from it.'
Instead,
I have only wish
the wish that is
already granted
from the very start.
I never know it
could happen
could ever be
possible.

I was saved by God
from poverty of the mind
poverty of the heart
and poverty of the soul.
I escaped from poverty not
by my wings
by my two huge wings
but by God's wings
God's humble wings
and together we
escaped poverty
and flew away
from it.
