Being Poor Vs Being RichA Poem by Lady Valmar
Written when I was 16. March 30, 2002. Thought I'd post it.
Poor as society defines it today is not what it truly is. Take a walk with me and see through my eyes, experience what I experience, and walk in my shoes. Come and I shall show you.
Being Poor is being unable to love.
Being Poor is being unable to have the ability to read or write.
Being Poor means you have no house, (even if your house is made of mud or sticks etc its still a house!)
Being Poor means you have no clothing to cover yourself
Being Poor means you have no food and do not know how to find or get food.
Being Poor means you do bad on school on purpose to ruin your future,
Being Poor means you are always negative towards everything
Being Poor means you don't know how to laugh
Being Poor is not being able to understand anything, you are but an animal
Being Poor is not giving love to others or even friendship
Being poor is being selfish
Being poor is enjoying the hurts of another person
Being poor means you have no heart at all
If you are all of these things then you are truly poor and a weak minded individual. Rich as society defines it today is not what it truly is. Take a walk with me and see through my eyes, experience what I experience, and walk in my shoes. Come and I shall show you.
Being Rich means you have an education
Being Rich means you have some type of a roof over your head and a place to sleep
Being Rich means you can love and make friendships
Being Rich means you can smile, even if it was only once during your whole lifetime
Being Rich means you have at least one memory of happiness
Being Rich means you can laugh
Being Rich means you try to care for others
Being Rich means you try doing good at school, even if you fail at least you tried!
Being Rich means you have your own special talents or abilities (even if no one knows about it!)
Being Rich means you do not discriminate
Being Rich means you have at least one friend
Being Rich means you feel loved in someone by someone or have the memory of being loved
Being Rich means you can still dream
Being Rich means you can think and do not always rely on instinct
Being Rich means you know yourself if only a little bit
And being rich means you have at least a heart!
