Pity The Pauper's Pitiful Plight

Pity The Pauper's Pitiful Plight

Have you ever thought of the poor you know?

We all know being poor is really no disgrace,

But what if it was you who was now standing

This day in the poor lonely pauper's place?


What if you knew a family that was hungry

And no money to buy what they would need?

You would know then how a pauper must feel,

You would know the terror of no food to feed.


But did you ever really think that a rich man

Could be a pauper with no God in his heart?

When terror then comes within their lives

To find relief they don't know where to start.


Their money can buy food for their tables

And put clothes upon their children's back.

It will never bring peace to an aching heart

That only comes from the God that they lack.


There is a difference with God in the hearts,

God knows and answers the poor man's prayers.

He sends what is needed to the poor man's home,

And they all give Thanks to the God who cares.


Rich man's riches won't buy a Heavenly home,

Nor a happiness that he has never known.

That all comes from our Heavenly Father Above

And it's a gift that He just saves for His own.


So think now of just what you would rather be,

What you want to feel deep in your heart.

Do you want an everlasting Peace abide within

When from this earth you will soon depart ?


Money will bring no man a lasting comfort

But God will fill a heart with His Great Love ,

Then when your life here on earth is over

He will take you home to His Heaven Above!

I want to thank each one of you that has offered

help and prayers to get this computer going

again. I have tried so many things but nothing

seemed to help , I don't know if it is something

that was done or if it was God who touched it .I

did want to get back on here but at times it

had begun to look doubtful . I just wanted to

tell you all thanks and I love you, Clara

You make such a good point here Clara, for how very many rich never find happiness even with everything they could ever want. We know what they are missing and hopefully we would never trade places with them.

Up and sharing. Welcome back!

Well that is a very good poem and Clara I am sure there was a reason (there always is with God, you know God, he doesnt do things for nothing)

for your poem to be only posted now except for the title.

We can go from rich to poor or visa versa in a matter of days.

This may be another story or off topic a bit, but I am not someone who judges by money, I really despise any landlord that asks for credit checks, how sad this is. I know I been there when searching for apartments and then walked out. (even at the times I had good credit)

I mean they can rent to someone who has good credit on paper but doesn't make them more likely to pay their rent or even to lose all they had in a matter of days. It happens to us all.

These kind of people are pride, arrogant and stuck up and to make another long story short. I had this one couple who rented to me, this was before I bought my house and moved in with my sons stepdad so we are talking 20 some years ago. I needed a place at the time desperately, my sons father walked out and I actually was not working at the time. Anyway he wanted a credit check and I had no choice. (it was all good though my credit) anyway he was mean and hateful to us, he looked at me like I was low life, but my sons stepdad well he wasnt then as of yet knew the guy and took care of it.

He was nosy and he kept coming to the apartment on purpose.

It was actually starting to freak me out, well anyway he lived in this mansion and this apartment was not nearly anything close to being what I paid rent, but like I said I had no choice.

He forever flaunted his money, bragged among other stuff.

Well 2 months later, he lost everything including his wife and kids, I wanted to laugh and tell him, the good book calls it Gods revenge, however the nice person I was , I just wished him all the best and the building was sold and renovated.

But then happily we ended up buying our home at the time.

So I think the title says it all

thanks Clara

Blessings

Love Laurie

Hi Clara, good to hear from you. This poem made me think of the point Jesus drives home, when He said, What profit a man to gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? What will he give in exchange for his soul?

Thank You,Jackie , for your nice comment, I am glad to be back ,too.My computer and I are not very compatible , neither are my cell phone and me .All that I wanted was to be able to make calls but there are so many things I am not sure if I will ever get it all figured out. I am too old for all of this modern stuff ,I guess. I guess I will try to make it on here in the mornings, not too much traffic on here then.

God bless you dear Clara! So glad you are back and up and running as far as your computer. One never knows, and it may be that this particular poem was meant to come through at this precise time to bless someone who may need to read it.

You have been in my thoughts and prayers and please know just how much you and your writing were missed!

What a profound piece of poetry to make a comeback here. Yes, you have provided a lot of food for thought no doubt about it. Those who know the Lord in their hearts truly have much "wealth" beyond measure. No amount of money will ever compare to His love, mercy and grace for eternity.

Up and more and sharing

God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Hi Laurie, It was good to hear from you , This was the poem that I told you had an unusual name , I tried to send it to you but it came back and I could not send one of your emails to reply. the poem was too long for that.Faith said what you did maybe there was a reason it would not work , maybe God did want it out at a certain time , I really hadn't thought anything like that. Perhaps I will never know the reason some things happen , I guess my job is to write. I have some more comments to put on here so I had better get off of here and get finished, I'll talk to you later, Love you ,Clara

Hello Mabel, it is good to hear from you . I remember that song ,what would you give in exchange for your soul? Some people now are selling their soul to the devil for money . Satan's abode forever, what a poor bargain! This world is getting worse every day. Love and a hug, Clara

hello clara ... so glad the computer decided to cooperate with you .. things happen for a reason ..at least that is to me, what I always remember when things aren't going my way .. in your case .. when we need to learn to accept that all does not always go our way we need to step back and look at the bigger picture of what the Lord has provided for us .. how life is not perfect, but just when we think all is dark and we are ready to give up hope .. he will shine his light .. showing us our way that he had right there, but ..we had the tiniest bit of doubt.

Bless you clara and hope the best for you ..my dear .. keep writing these beautiful thought provoking hubs .. for we all missed you .!

Hello Faith, I am sorry I could not get back to you last night, I tried but everything kept wiping off for me. I put another one on this morning and it went through. I told Michael I guess I will have to write in the morning, I do not have very much trouble. I like to do my Bible reading in the morning and on the hub at night but I guess I am going to have to switch and see if that helps me.I usually try to get my daughter at night but I haven't been able to get her then ,she has been having trouble on Facebook.If I had the higher grade of internet I don't think I would have all of this trouble , but this one is expensive enough without upgrading.One night I talked to her I think it was around 11 or later and I didn't have any trouble , there was only one other on chat box at that time. of course my boys were not on there then, I hope to get all of the kinks worked out of this sooner or later.Talk to you later ,love,Clara

Hello Faith, this still i s not right. I hit the comment button once and the comment came up 2 times , I tried to get it off but it would not work, Maybe someone can tell me why it does this . It has happened to me several other times. Oh , well I can live with that if that is all that happens , Love ,Clara

I do understand about your difficulty with technology, there is just so much for us oldies to learn and it often seems to go in one ear and straight out the other. Lovely to have you back and enjoyed your hub and its reminder.

Hello Blossom , when I was young we did not have computers ,TV'S, cell phone , and so many other things that people can not do without anymore. I grew up but so many things I have never been able to work with or enjoy. I often think the old days were so much better and a kinder time , not what we have anymore. I am sure the God is not pleased with the many things that are going on down here now. Love and a hug, Clara

Hello Michael ,I guess I must have missed your last comment , I think that was when I was having so much trouble with this , right now it seems to be doing better not the best but better. Thanks for your comment , Always good to hear from you ,Clara

I think there was a reason for God not wanting you back on the computer at such a time. It works out

Hello Laurie, How are you doing with your hubs now?I have had to be off for a little while but since I could not make things any better , I thought I might as well get back on here where at least some people will listen to me.I hope this computer will keep on working right now because I do not do very good on my own with it.Hope you are having good days now . Love you ,Clara
