Poverty - Poem by kottrell johnson

'living day to day,

paycheck to paycheck,

questioning your next meal,

can’t grasp the growling in your stomach,

shelter becomes just that

but barely,

running water becomes scarce

winter is the battle between life and death,

aid from the goverment is low,

war is on the mind whom holds chairs in office

praying doesn’t provide food for hunger,
