What is Poverty?

What is poverty? 
Poverty is a termite eating away at a child’s heart, mind and self-esteem. And poverty is a liar.
Poverty is overwhelming, frightening and debilitating, but not invincible.
Poverty is a monster. Poverty is a cancer. Poverty is a thief.
Poverty is a prison cell with the key in sight, but just out of reach. Poverty is a lack of opportunity.
Poverty is a plague, chain and a cockroach. It’s also the most ridiculous thing in the world.
Where is poverty?
It isn’t in the future for our children.
