Her fingers are dirty,
Her hair tangled.
She's a mess, some would say.
But at least her heart is pure.

His wrists covered in scars,
His stomach roaring with hunger.
He's damaged, some would say.
But at least his love is whole.

Her breathing is heavy,
And her skin is pale.
She's dying, some would say.
But at least she knows how to live.

At least a woman without a house
Knows how to make a home.
Hand her a loaf of bread,
And she won't devour it,
Because she knows how to treasure
The beauty in life.

At least a boy without a smile
Knows how to hold on,
Longer than someone who's never fallen,
And never dared to learn
How to fly.

At least a girl in the mobile chair
Knows how to capture a moment,
Because she can't quite be sure
How many moments really are
Remaining.

At least someone with so little
Can appreciate
And know
So much.

Because when you have so much...

You only have so little.

Hey, is it ok if I use this for a public speaking project in my English class?  We have to read a poem aloud and I really like this one!

Excellent imagery with a beautiful, well-executed moral.
Think of this as how any inspirational poem should be: Grounded in reality and succinct.
Great job.

This poem is a work of beauty. We really don't appreciate all the things we have and how lucky we are

True, amazing.. No words.

This just shows.. Through all of the judging others do, all of those people who think they're perfect... Well, nobody's perfect. But sometimes the people who are a mess on the outside come the closest to being perfect within.

I am at  the moment too emotional and made a mess up in my head to clear my mind and give a critique...
But this is amazing, overpowered, deep and felt.
I freaking adore this.
I cant... <3
I'll just go now. Ugh.

Yeah I think it may be harder to appreciate all the little things when you have much 
you may not even realise or think about it

It made me feel somber and vulnerable....but in the best way! Clap
