Should I feel ashamed?

Should I feel ashamed?
Should I feel ashamed because I am poor?
Because I was born in a poor family?
Because I live in a poor country?

Why does poverty exist?
I often wonder why it is not solved.

When I go to the internet café
and can see the world where so many people
live in luxury and abundance…

When I read about all the violence
and lack of happiness in that kind of world too…

I often wonder why poverty exists.
Do some need to live in abundance,
while others cannot even survive?

With a little help I could study.
With a little help I could be healthier.
With a little help I could help my country.

Material poverty that you can do nothing about
should be no reason to make you feel ashamed.

Helping to alleviate poverty and distress
should be a reason to make you feel proud.

I do not want to be rich.
I just want to be able to live a life
without too many worries about basic needs.

A little help could make a big difference.
