On being poor, and not just a little bit

This can only be from someone who is or has been there. If this feels real to you then you've most likely been there. If you can't imagine this reality then you're probably not close to being poor. If this is your nightmare, I'm sorry. I'm sorry that you live in a country that thinks this is OK, that if you work harder everything will be alright. I'm not there. Yet. But I am as close as I've ever been. And I'm seeing myself slide down that rat hole no matter what I do. So I'm sorry.
