'Tis True What Is Said About People

'Tis true what is said about people that everyone has a life story to tell
Though not everybody's life story in book form a million copies would sell
The biography of a poor homeless person many would not be interested to read
Life's journey from the poorest suburb to success for most people never lead
The lives of elite sports people and celebrities and those of power and money makes the best sellers list
Just reading of and hearing about them the masses cannot seem to resist
Suppose we only admire in others what we ourselves aspire to be
Most wish to be wealthy and famous and none wish to live in poverty
Most do wish to be wealthy and famous and others their praises to sing
Suppose to wish to be loved and admired is quite human it does seem a natural thing
But the road to success is a steep road and few ever climb to renown
And what hope for the poor and the homeless who live in the poor side of the town?
You ask one of their life wishes poverty he or she never choose
But the sad thing about the Human World is that for one to win many must lose.

Don'T Go Abroad

All good ones walk on the same road
And say that the West is the best.
They find in it peaceful life's code
In the Third World there is no rest.

Bag and baggage they go to west
And leave behind inferiority
In all those who want to contest
With problems with torn poverty.

Brave ones don't leave the battlefield
Good cause is all they want to have
Neither medals nor shining shield
And for coming time the path pave.

Please live in Poverty's cottage
And try to build it up anew
Try to fill the empty pottage
With paradise' honey and dew.

Lesd Wrestler

Even you’ve strength
You don’t have cattle
My age mate
You won’t get
Poverty will strength and ambitions
In village with man with hope
Who watch flag
Poverty will kill strength with man
Who wish to be flag bearer
In wresting,
Lead wrestler goes to cattle camp
After match
But lead poor wrestler to farm
After wearing shame of being

Poverty, And Ignorance!

one of the most infuriating
things i've ever read inferred
that people live in poverty
because they are ignorant!

the majority of people living
in poverty are there because
they are the victims of human greed.
call it what you want....

when too few have too much,
the many do without.
we are not so ignorant as to
accept your blatent assumptions!
