What Is It To Be Poor?


I have often wondered,
what is it to be a poor?
An empty vault, a broken heart,
or my complacent self to remain at the shore?

Is it the lack of what I could've got?
Or is it the consequent melancholy that follows life?
Or is it to see some other folks, rich?
Or my desire less glory that bestows life?

Is it a queen which can never leave you?
Or is it the city's most unpaid whore?
Or is it the nothingness where I could find,
the infinite glory in being a poor? ?
