State of being poor and a deprived word
Not only in India but all over the world

Is poverty, being witnessed by every human
In the country, society and for even a layman

Arising out of famine, flood or an earthquake
It drives very deep and causes heart-ache

When one thirsts or starves and bed-ridden
In society he is defined as poverty stricken

Expenditure more than income not worrying about tomorrow
Is a state of poverty too, asking your to borrow

No money for daily bread and debts piling
Hike in prices and the present cost of living

Leaves even an employed, in a month-end poverty
Which is a recurring event and tends to infinity
To solve this problem, there is no surety.
