Capable of germinating

Or working – a good plan

I am neither

There is no financial

Independence here;

Little lucre of any sort.

I must toil

To survive.

No complaints

No recriminations

Just not viable

As a partner

For I do not bring

That to the relationship.


Were it not for

My life as a caregiver

I would be homeless.

There is naught

To be done.

I am poor,



There is wealth

Of other sorts here:

Lodes of creativity,



A deep regard

For my fellow man.


There is passion

And Poetry;

A willingness

To communicate.


Also, I am

Cleanly and Kind,


Just not viable.
