One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"

"It was great, Dad."
 
"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me, what you learned from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered:
"I saw that we have one dog and they had four.

We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.

We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night...

Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.
We buy our food, but they grow theirs.

We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them."

The boy's father was speechless.
Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

dear Nalja

 

you know I work on a social project in Brazil, so I share the life of that ppl when I'm there. I know, what it mean to be poor and have no chance to escape.

 But ppl in europe very often complain on a high level . Many of them don t know, what it means to be poor.

 Thanks for that story Nalja  ,Shukran

in fact

that's compare between cities ppl "urban"  and villages ppl "rural" more than compare between the  poverty and  wealth


cuz when the one easily canna get eatin and wear also lives in luxury we shouldn't say he's "poor"

 

thanks alot for this fantastic story

    Broken heart.

Love that is lost, may not ever be found,
If it is over, why keep waiting it out?
Try and try you might, but it wasn't meant to be,
A broken heart will mend as days turn to weeks,
Soon you'll have a scar, forever there to stay,
But eventually you'll forget it, and keep living your days,
Smile for love is possible,
You'll find the one for you,
Never give up to the broken heart,
And remember, I am here for you.

Reason to Smile
 
 

How can one smile such sweet smiles,
When one is so saddened by sorrows for miles,
How can I smile the same smiles,
When life brings me nothing but tears,

I wondered for so long,
What reason you had to smile that long,
To keep smiling though troubles come,
And still remain sweet and silently overcome,

It's such a mystery to me,
Your smiles from heaven with glee,
I adore and yet envy thee,
But I'd rather you smile those at me,

I feel happy when I see you smile,
Even if I'm sad and lonely,
Your smiles bring me somewhere,
I don't even know where,

But it was you,
You gave me the reason to smile,
To smile with no reason,
To smile for a smile,

I guess life is just like that,
We need not a reason to smile,
For a smile is the reason itself,
To rejoice and open-heartedly give thanks,

I learned to smile because of you,
Because your smiles bring me joy when blue,
It proves how well and powerful,
A simple sweet smile can become so beautiful,

Smile for the sake of a smile,
Smile for the sake of happiness,
Smile for the sake of life,
Smile because of hope left in life,

Smile my friends,
Smile for me my Love,
Smile those same sweet smiles,
Smile so the world can be a peaceful dove...
