The Poorest Of the Poor...

 

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

 

The poorest of the poor...

They say that we are

But we can smile for sure

And wish upon a falling star

We have our love to give

And anything worth to share

Go on the earth to live

And just by being here

 

The richness is inside

Of feelings to stir awake

Some hope may well collide

In what there is at stake

But still we have our own

That money cannot gain

More glittery than gemstone

- Our heart and our brain

 

The poorest of the poor...

We haven't notice this

For we’re just as you’re

When everything's amiss

So richness we have as much

As anyone else on Earth

We have our heart and touch

It must be of gold its worth
