Passionate Poverty

To some people poverty makes you repulsive
Because you own no tangible property to share;
Nothing to entertain and feed their compulsive
Profligacy of which you're unaware.

Poverty makes you glitter and truly
Human and affectionate because you value people
For who they are and their true worth, really
And from your heart and soul altruism quintuple.

Poverty peels off humbug and complacency
To expose the deeper layers of personality
Filled with genuine compassion and human decency
And poverty befriends simplicity, humanity and humility.

END POVERTY

End poverty
In the world now
Please
Come and work
Together to end poverty
In the world
So many people in the world are starving

WE ARE NOT ALONE RHAPSODY

We are not alone
When it comes to poverty
Because we live in the streets
Among poverty

Poverty by Design

Poverty is when you have the ample
resources to provide for the common
societal needs, such as plentiful food,
clean housing and healthcare for all and
yet you refuse to do it.

Poverty is not realizing that happiness
can be nurtured from a sense of well
being in a right livelihood. Work well
done under humane conditions for
a wage that enables and ennobles man
to have a decent life.

Poverty is not ensuring that all in your land
have an opportunity for right livelihood
and activity that reinforces self worth
and happiness instead of hopelessness.

Poverty is when you can drive around
in your limousine peering out the windows
at the masses. Faceless beings
of hopelessness and despair.
Homeless, alcohol and drug addicted
casualties of the streets.

As you turn your head away and
put them out of your mind you tell
yourself the poor will always be with us.
Knowing very well that it doesn’t
have to be this way.

Poverty is when your view of the world is
so narrow that it can’t see past borders to
one humanity and the only concept of
wealth and success is by winning the
competitive sport of domination of
natural resources and slave labor.

Poverty is when we eradicate with
sophisticated weaponry other humans,
our self created enemies, instead of
eradicating hunger, and disease and ignorance.

Poverty is when greed has replaced honesty
and life means less than money and power.
When entire industries fold and are replaced
by institutions of debt and servitude.

Poverty is when the architecture of
social design is based on taking and
conquering instead of sharing and
creating.

Poverty is when the educated minds of
the world with the best resources of
knowledge and logic and organization
and abundant materials at their finger
tips can’t find solutions for problems
that a child’s mind could easily solve.
A child’s mind so free of preconceived
ideas about supply and demand, and
value and prejudice.

Poverty is a disease of the soul that starts
at the top and trickles down. It destroys
society and strangles the natural
in born life giving loving nature of mankind.

Poverty starts at the top, in the castle
on the hill. Poverty is the epitome
of trickle down economics.

Poverty is man made and is not the
natural state of man. Poverty is not
what God intended for his blessed
creation. Poverty is not by
God’s design.
