A 'New Age Pauper...'

I have nothing...

but, I'll give you all I can
scrapping together two pennies
wishing them dollars
to place into your grateful hand

I have nothing...

except the shirt 'pon my
soiled, heavy labor strewn' back
take it...as I pray whatever material
remains, as testament to strive for
more of what I lack

I have nothing...

proof positive...I simply survive
dreaming to one day...to truly 'live'
I should be ashamed to want,
to expect you, to want me
as I struggle, 'ends' never meat
tabled reality for a second
on a fantasy ride

I have nothing...

so far be it for anyone to ever understand
there are no fancy cars, expensive
vacation getaways, swollen bank
accounts...just a huge consistently abused
heart bursting with passionate love
in the depth's of this particular man...
