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.

Poverty-II

Satiated, desiring but not having enough food to offer some, is also poverty,
Sheltered, wishing, but failing to accommodate a guest, is also poverty,
Treated, prescribed, but unable to effort better treatment is also poverty,
Clothed, requiring but can't afford sufficient to meet the need is also poverty,
Educating, meritorious, but failing to provide better education is also poverty,
Social, invited but avoiding a ceremony to avoid buying a gift is also poverty,
Celebration, aspiring but fearing expenses not celebrating is also poverty,
Friend in distress, desiring but incompetent to help a friend is also poverty,
oppressed, rights denied, deciding but failing to buy Justice is also poverty,
Time elapsed but not repaying debts for not having money is also poverty.

(Africa poems) I wallow alone in my poverty

Do not come to haul
Me out of my poverty.Rush
To end your own poverty
Of the spirit.I wallow alone
In my sea of poverty

The Shadow Inside My Shadow

poverty is not my cousin,
is not my lover,
is not my preacher,
poverty is not my brother.

poverty is not my prayer,
or the song that i sing
is not my answer
poverty is not my dream.

poverty is not my teacher,
not the hand that i hold.
poverty is not my anger,
not my spirit, not my soul.

ah! but this poverty is real
it races thru my mind
crashes into my heart,
& leaves me deaf and blind.

poverty is my companion.
the aching cold inside my hollow.
the blow behind my eyes,
poverty is the shadow
inside my shadow.
