Poverty

(Contributed Article by Josh Servais) Who feels it knows it A cliché the poor often use 24 hours a day the time spent wishing we was in some one else’s shoes.

It is said that education is the key which unlocks the door to higher standards of living and possibly riches. So can you tell me why: why the do the government makes it do damn expensive .

Growing up in poverty is no small matter, for breakfast in the morning it was decushai, for dinner it was dumplings an butter.

Laying in bed at nights, I could see the stars through the hole in the roof. When the rain came I was guaranteed to get wet. At the end of the month the mere sight of the postman could make my mother fret.

The tears that trickle down my eyes most times were my only drinking water, and at times I contemplated suicide. Everyday I figured that life must be easer on the other side.

What is the reason for the crime rate being at such a high level? Who’s listening to the poor when they cry? They’re pleading for a helping hand, but no onr wants to hear them.

I would like to tell you the answers to the question,  but if I do you wouldn’t understand: simply because who feels it know it.

  1. Growing little but I never saw it as poverty. I always knew that there were people in the community that had much more material things than us but there were so many other people we could have identify with so the playing field was level in that respect.

    As I get older the world of consumerism is gradually introduce to you and what was normal in now seen as a problem.

    A sense of what people call poverty can creep on you even in the abundance of the basic necessity of life.

    To many of us the homes were small plenty children but we had food in abundance .the challenge was always the lack of creativity preparing these meals hence the reason we always had so called decushai if there was no decushai that would have been a concern.

    To me if there was no decuhai it meant that we were poor and nothing was left behind to share with some one

  2. “Educated” people do not rely on governments to make their lives better … but rather in themselves where they can use their “education” to make their lives better. Education is knowledge in knowing HOW to live, how to survive, how to excel, and in honing one’s common sense.
