Poor are… (inspired by Mt 5:3-11)


Poor are, who know everything,
for their hearts remain empty.

Poor are, who have everything,
for they stay alone.

Poor are the violent,
for they will lose everything.

Poor are the self-righteous,
for they only have themselves.

Poor are the merciless,
for they are judged after their standards.

Poor are, who have calculating hearts,
for money is their God.

Poor are, who make war,
for power is their God.

Poor are, who are satisfied with the Status Quo,
for the mainstream is their God.

Poor are you, if you like fame and reputation of the people,
for you have nothing in common with me.
