You can but I can't

Poetry By: declan mckimm

This is a poem about what it is like for a poor person. This is to make you understand what people go through in the world.

You can run around and play,

but I can't

You can dance the night away,

but I can't

You can laugh at the TV,

but I can't

You can get the internet for free,

but I can't

You can taste the sweet food,

but I can't

You can easily change your mood,

but I can't

You can smell the beautiful fresh air,

but I can't

You can wash and style your hair,

but I can't

You have everything,

I have nothing.

No hope

No happiness
