Poverty is a disease.
It doesn’t let many live with ease.
It is a sickness with no cure.
It makes the future insecure.
Poverty is suffering and hunger.
Life is tiring with no shelter.
Poverty is powerlessness
It is what makes you lose your child to illness.
Poverty is a dearth of representations…
An abundance of need,
A lack of the ability to read.
It is not being able to reach school
to find the tool
and get out of this whirlpool.
which is nothing but wrathful.
I hope this poem will make you glum
but people please don’t succumb
and try to change this evil custom
because poverty is nothing but the dearth of freedom.
