The Poor

The Poor have been screaming out; Help Me!!

Yet you turned deaf and held your breath, for their scent of poverty is everywhere…

The horrors that they tell, you know it very well…

Being scornful is not the answer for poverty is like cancer it can spread anywhere…

Poverty is colorless, has no preference for race, creed or color...

Poverty is an anchor, a suppresser of dreams...

The Poor have been screaming, pleading,for a chance to have a better life...

The government doesn't hear them, the rich shuns them, and the middle class is trying not to become them...

Who will speak for them? Who will weep for them, and Who is next to join them?

The Poor need a voice, need some help and someone to hear their screams, will it be you? Or you don't see them too?
