poverty is rich

i was asked once, ”why choose the poverty? in reference to my material choices and i laughed at myself as i sighed for the world as the question demonstrates the collective belief that success and comfort and even happiness is measured in things, in luxuries, in a lavish lifestyle, in possessions and the means to obtain them… and i think back to when i had much more than i do now, when i had the means to travel and buy so much more than i can now, and i smile at the choice i made to give it all away… for it is the giving that pleases me much more than the possessing… it is the sharing that pleases me most of all… but even when others do not share, giving enriches my life experience… it is the giving that brings the best feeling i’ve known in this life short of shared love…

so why do i choose that most consider poverty?...

because it feels good :)
