humanity has caught a hold of me these day's. I no longer think just about me but every human that roams earth. I still see that we haven't come that far from slavery and every human has a story a life all belonging here. So discrimination over money race gender we are all living on this planet so let's make it our home.
we are all equal by law and by God so enjoy life befriend someone new today.

Don't know if human's will ever see every soul born, is right where it's meant to be For the rich to become the richest there has to be a place for the poorest The entire world is built up from the same level of dirt each soul is born without knowledge to cause hurt Humanity teaches us what a human's life is worth, by money and glory I am to believe all lives are priceless, every soul fit's to tell Earth's story The luckiest to be born, is that of a poor man he learn's the treasures, of everything he can Those born into all riches, have no true understanding of richness seeing us not as human's, but those living in poverty as an illness Love start's from the soul, and from there it is taught to grow the rich find another kind of love, one only brought with dough Love, trust, compassion and grace defining the difference in richest and wealth t'is the beggar off the street, who climbs the toughest road to earn his wealth He is the most blessed man, he is rewarded with the most valuable key for his wealth is humanly uncountable, for only God know's the value of he...

This shows an understanding of humanity that is lacking in today's society. Thoughtful, perceptive, well written. My Dad never made much but loved the life he lived stating once that too much is never enough.

Hi Denise, My name is Nikita Sampson a student at ASA College. I am writing an essay analyzing your poem "POVERTY DEFINES TRUE WEALTH. Can you give me some insight about this poem? What were you thinking about when you wrote it ? Is it related to society? But more of the culture that we are living it today. I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you

I was thinking that the poorest of the poor have more soul and heart than the millionaire who's life is about possessions, his wife married him for his money,, his kids are given everything they ask for. Few of them know the true value of life. The beggar appreciates and savours everything he has.

I am so sorry I didn't get to have you show up in class with this poem. I had a serious car accident and I am trying to get my poetry back to the focus of my life.

Your philosophy is very good Denise in this poem, the beggar in the street learns more about wealth than the richest tychoon, a masterpiece of sorts, and quite an achievement for you, the poem is inspirational. The word men't (Meant) for future reference, this word also stumped me, it is the small words that give everyone the most problems, well written, all the best. John
