To Be Rich

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “All or Nothing?.

When I Was Poor

I wasn’t looking for the next iPod or the trendiest pair of kicks.

When I was poor

I didn’t dream of walking off the pages of some fashion zine.

When I was poor

All I thought about, cared about, was food.

When I was poor

I would beg for food from my classmates, my neighbors.

Because that’s what you do

When You’re Poor.
