My Middle Class.........A poem

Updated on June 11, 2015

Who wish for being so rich,
Fake liberty and tendency to ditch,
Who ask for, born in Poverty,
Filled with slavery and brutality,
Blessed being, a middle class,
Go for life, love and chances for flaws.

Who cares to be wealthy,
An imaginary life, stay partly,
No wish for born poor,
Finding a Life, a painful tour,
For me, love to be a mediocre,
Living a life as a game of poker.

Why looking at this big car,
Meant to show paths so far,
Why, a bare foot walk,
A long journey to start,
Bless me, a bicycle,
To make my venture calm & blissful.

Why feeding with a silver spoon,
Being human, not a callous tycoon,
Don’t make me beg for food,
Or indulge in collecting good,
Bless me with satisfaction in life
A heaven for equal human rights.

Why? Hard to maintain, self-pride,
No mercy, heart fully dried,
Living without any self esteem,
Always struggle for it to redeem,
Make me a human with self respect
Gesture to Give, nothing to expect

      You've certainly got a strong point. Here in Latvia the middle class is not at poverty level and I believe there is nothing in between anymore and then there is the upper class that's sponging up everything else.

      Hi Richa!

      What an innovative theme for a poem! You said it simply but effectively.

      I like being a middle class. Too much money scares me and having too less will make life miserable. Little bit of pull and push is fine.

      Very nice and well done. Voted up and thanks for the 'follow'.

      What a world it would be if everyone had just what they needed. Instead the richest 10% have it all, and still they're not happy. I guess we all want what we haven't got. Nice poem, thought provoking.

      Very interesting poem. It is not bad to just be smack in the middle. The middle class is becoming smaller and smaller as time goes on and your poem is a great argument for maintaining a middle class. Voted up+

      Love the warning and juxtaposition of the extremes. Give me middle class every and any day. Great Poem!

      I understand what you mean, in the middle is the place to be. Every "class" has their problems. However, being too rich or too poor brings on a whole new set of problems.
