Does that make me poor?

October 21, 2011
People only care about money.
But would you still love me if I were poor?

I shop at good will but i have a cell.
I get money when I want it but our hot water is broken. Does that make me poor?

We have lots of food but a small house 3 bedrooms (plus a small room for my sister) for 6 people and 2 dogs.

I never see people out on the street but i know they are out there. Does that make me poor?

Kiry.... This is my second time reading out and you opened my eyes. I use to be the type of people who made fun of people who shop at goodwill and thrift stores. But nowadays I've realized that I was stupid to make fun. Realize materials and clothes don't matter what matters is the inside of the person not what they have.

I agree with twinnbears27. Good idea but got a little lost. Overall it's good though

I had to read it a few times for it to make sense, but besides that I think this is pretty good. It's a good concept, and with a little clarification (third and fifth lines) this would be a great piece in my opinion.
