Rich And Poor People - Poem by samuel nze

Rich and poor people
Have the same trouble
The former from overeating
The latter from swelting

Both die just the same
Rich people always rest
The poor are lame
Yet endure the test

Rich man poor man
Both are the very same
No one cares or can
Lay on either the blame

I am poor but was rich
I will still again be rich
I was smug but now swelting
I want to be more a blessing.
