Real wealth is about good health
of mind emotions body and spirit
and balancing these with aplomb
It’s about our strong inner resilience

Its owning our quirks
while celebrating our talents
Connecting in meaningful ways
and contributing to our community

Poverty can be extreme
but for most of us it might mean
A struggle to pay our bills
No finance to fix our ills

No real treats, meals out
or the inability to shout
our kids even a basic holiday
diet limited by purchasing power

Cringe, now I’ve done it, my pet hate
posted a poem that doesn’t relate
to the daily prompt at any level
Feeling that internal grate?

Daily Prompt:  Cringe
