The Most Frustrating Thing About Poverty

The most frustrating thing about poverty is the lack of resources. Most things cost money. If you're poor it means you don't have the money to purchase resources. In a lotta cases the very resources that might enable you to get out of poverty.

The old saying...gotta have money to make so true!

Just wish I knew a way out. At my age and with my circumstances...'get a job' not an option. I've hit a dead end street.
