Poor

Have a little...

Poor.

Meager, inadequate, hunger, insignificant, weak, destitute, disfavored and unnoticed

Pour not a little love that originates from pure character?

Have you ever known poor?

A child that looks at other children in wonder, smiling helplessly at their grandeurs

Do you know what it means to be poor?

A life that has been decided in the household one was born into

Have you ever been poor?

Disrespected and hated by the closest family members and complete strangers

Do you know what it means to suffer?

When all you feel is fear

Have you known what education is?

Being deprived from it because one’s family was too poor to pay for it

Had you known what is terror?

Being stepped on and constantly feeling threatened

Do you know what life is like for the poor?

.

.

.

Suddenly in the pitch darkness of the night,

 The morning sun shone bright

It directed its light, causing comfort to reign over the whispering darkness

It spoke; do not fret for as long as the heart is clear, victory is near,

The trees then gently swaying, they said, be patient dear, do not fear, and take refuge in our cover

The blue sky too smiled, it said, what if not temporal, keep steadfast and soon you will be breaking your fast.

So did the vast ocean, serenading with its gentle waves, mesmerizing making his heart feel at ease, till he felt as if he was poor no more.

The ocean then said, should you not then be grateful?
don’t be overcome with sadness and forget your senses.

For this will pass and I will pass and you and everything else will pass

Don’t you know what life is?

Overcoming tests, being a grateful being and in humility attaining wisdom.

Do you know who the poorest are?

Those with too many desires, those who forget what they have while being engrossed in their desires

Do you know who the richest are?

Those who are grateful for what they have.

about the writer

Alam

Often seen as cold, bitter and distant but in reality is cool, sweet and not very distant..haha Sometimes I feel like saying what Kierkegaard said, People understand me so poorly that they even dont understand my complain about them not understanding me. On the other hand often I assume of understanding people completely...so i guess its a given or an irony or something else..depends on how you see it..
