Poverty is a description of someone’s financial situation; it does not describe who someone is.

I do not have food for dinner but that does not make me poor

I shower in public facilities but that does not make me poor

I sleep on a friends couch but that does not make me poor

I can’t pay my bills but that does not make me poor

I don’t own a car but that does not make me poor

I am rich because I inspire myself

I am rich because hard times come and go

I am rich because this morning the sun was shining

I am rich because I have friends and family who love me

I am rich because I wake up every day with a smile on my face
