A series of poems I did for english class plus extras.

What is Poverty?

Poverty is the spirit of despair

Hovering over you like a feather on a breeze,

Or maybe a shadow darker

Than pitch blackness.

Poverty is like an icy rain

It bites and wears you down

Bit by bit.

Or maybe it's deeper than the ocean depths

It digs deep into your pockets

Deeper into the nether world

It crawls out of sewers and

Through drains looking for those

Who are uncertain as to where they belong

And when it finds you it fills you

With debt and loss.
