Driven Over

A fast pace, reckless delivery
On a residential block, Split head motionless.
Outrage smiles, caution authority
Outrage speaks, only the hood listens
Fallen on the world's deaf ear
Poverty line, who cares
Another no man, a great deed surpasses.
A cleanse of relief for upper class
Brushed under the cover, a loss of life's breath
Unworthy on the front or any pages above poverty
Run down, one of many
Authorities lesson on the lesser maybe
Tears exit only from the eyes of the lesser society.

If I Was

If i was given the chance to change the world,
i would change Laws,
i would give people equal opportunities to life,
i would stop poverty

i want things to change

i hate how we have war
i hate how we have poverty
i hate how we have un equal lives
i hate how we have un fair laws

Poem and Poverty

Neither have I measured the life with coffee spoon
Nor did hips ever become a drum to beat, at noon
Cruel hunger like autumn paved the path for spring
I dreamed; for empty tummy within the poverty ring.

I measured life with tear full tumbler like a gambler
Breathe stucks up on stake and eyes and mind blur
Initially Lord gave me poverty and then thought
Now held pen with pain, for you, poems, I brought.

Whether you read or not, poems, here on poem hunter
I will write, so as to ease myself and my agony, for barter

Those Among You

Oh land of poverty
There are those among you
Sent for your healing
Do not shut their mouths
Do not shut your ears
A luxury you can not afford
They speak your language
And another that you not know
There are those among you
They understand your disease
Deny them not their birth
The courage to believe
The prize is your salvation
Oh land of poverty please
