The curse of poverty


Poverty
Poverty is a curse for human society
Poverty prevails there where the injustice is
Poverty exclaims there where the illiteracy is
Poverty is purely man made
So it has to be eradicated from its root
The society afflicted with poverty
Is reprehension of entire human society
Corruption is the source of poverty
Only a fearless society can be said
Free from all poverty
Where the people are dumb and discounted
Poverty exists there
Poverty shows, how many immature person
Rule the country
Poverty is the reason for all philosophical end.

    Poverty is something comparative. It differs from society to society. In every society there is an average standard of living and one whose standard is below the average level is called a poor. We should say it as the basic needs of a human being must be provided to him. As far as luxuries are concerned it is up to your efforts. Your poem is a reflection of your feelings and love for the humanity, and I salute you for it. (Report) Reply
