Being Poor

Between the two
I do not know
what to choose.

Looking at both
I am fascinated
like to have them.

Checking my purse
I cannot afford
to buy both.

[i]Which one? Which one?

I go on asking, unable
to decide.

I try lots to resolve,
a compromise, makes
me confused.

No, I tell myself
do not let one go
both are beautiful.

This way, i cross myself
dilemma strikes me.
hurts, turns me helpless.

[i]”if at all I have the money”

I think aloud, but lo! I cry
[i][ I do not have,/i]

I resolve not buy them.
being poor is not
my fault, anyway.
