Difference of perspective

Dwindling in the dark; I taste the stars,
You can't do it in "artificial"...
Happiness for me when 'we' together..
Your expenses make own 'superficial'.

I secure my family to natures....
Gently it was and  all that nurtures.

You could have different colour spread...
For me it's just a "dole of bread"....

Heat you can't bare,  I walk barefooted,
Sun is sun to me too, but tied to my 'finances'
And still you critize? Don't you know for me it pains!
Don't pride on showers, for me it also rains...
Spendthrift you can be, l am bound to be "miser"..
You present 'pleasant' , l present 'grimmed'
And off could relax you, for me 'earning' is main...
Because all I could be poor again....

I don't owe big, neither can I do.
Only death can seperate me from these clutches too...
But l know I am something, in this crew..
Because without me, what are you?
