Rich And Poor

Rich And Poor short poem

Uploaded by Ramapriya Nr

Penniless, I get up in the morning having eight hours of sound sleep
feeling fresh and happy. don’t you feel I am rich in spite of being Poor ?

Milliner, I get disturbed sleep the whole night and get up with severe head ache
Don’t you feel I am poor in spite of being Rich

Penniless but I have a mind to physically/Emotionally
help the needy without any expectation. Tell me am I
not Rich in spite of being poor

Milliner but I refuse to give alms to a destitute / ,
physically handicapped for fear of losing money
Tell me am I not Poor in spite of being Rich

Penniless but I don’t feel jealous of my fellow being
prospering and am proud of his achievements. Am I
not Rich in spite of being poor

Milliner, but I cant take the prosperity of a poor
turning rich and feel jealous of him. Tell me am I not poor
in spite of being rich

Penniless,and I cant afford medical expenses but still willing
to donate my organs for the needy for charity. Tell me am I not
Rich in spite of being Poor

Milliner, and I can spend money for my medical treatment while
I refuse monetary help to the medical treatment of the destitute
Tell me am I not poor in spite of being Rich

Penniless but when I lay in death bed I hear hundreds of people
praying and crying for my survival . Am I not Rich in spite of being Poor

Milliner but when in death bed I hear people around cursing and feeling
happy at my impending exit. Am I not poor in spite of being Rich

Ones Good deeds will make him carry the Richness of Humanity
while ones greediness will make him carry the curse of Humanity

Poor Sweet Kids prose poem

We sure did love the lollipops, the cracker jacks, the Holloway candy sticks, the chocolate coated ice cream bars, and those tootsie rolls. We simply could not get enough of the pop sickles, the cool aids, and the soda pops.
