Ode To Poverty

Oh Poverty! What a complex and mysterious thing you are. You both liberate and oppress. You simultaneously free and enslave…

You are a guest that is never welcomed or desired yet your presence has such a sobering effect on the host drunk with indulgence…

Oh Poverty! Might that we have in abundance your opposite, yet maintain the wisdom of your essence…

Your fragrance often suffocates the very will of a person, but also has purifying qualities. Many liken you to a disease in need of extermination. However through some Divine wisdom you are allowed to continue to agitate humanity in all of your internal and external variations…

Oh Poverty! Your grip has been the culprit behind many an evil deed, yet it has also moved many to great acts of charity and kindness…

You are an angel masked as a Hydra… Might we be given the Herculean strength and moral fiber to endure your company and come to understand you…

Oh Poverty! What is your purpose? If it be the freedom from the prison of things in excess, then may you continue to grace us with your presence. If it be to empty the soul in preparation for what is better, then let not your progress be impeded by greed or our lack of understanding…

Poverty, you are a necessary teacher to humanity. May our instruction under your tutelage be fruitful, yet brief!
