Poverty; a curse.

A disease;

A stinking contagious disease. 

It can pass from generation to generation.

Poverty humbles you

Humiliates you

Makes you sing the praises of the one you absolutely abhor

Poverty makes you do things, you ordinarily wouldn’t have done

Poverty can make you accept wrong as right

Blind your eyes to things that matter

Poverty can make you wish you weren’t born 

Poverty can either make you think

Too highly of yourself

Or too low of yourself

Poverty will either bring out the best in you

Or the worst in you

Poverty can be a true test of character

It can make you question your beliefs and 

Your faith

Poverty is the number one cause of depression

Poverty can make you commit suicide

Poverty can be recognized in thoughts, actions, and speech. 

You can see poverty in people, the environment.

Poverty is not necessarily the absence of money,

But an underlying believe that money will forever be scarce.

The funny thing is, what brings this belief
Is the overstretch of long overdue poverty

Long after it gone, poverty can make you feel like

It’s still there

Because it overstayed it's welcome

When it should have left long ago

Whatever you do

Make the decision never

To be poor

And to break the cycle of poverty.
