What is poverty?

The official definition of poverty is:

the state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support; condition of being poor; indigence.
deficiency of necessary or desirable ingredients, qualities, etc.: poverty of the soil.

What is your definition? Is it similar to this? What "part" of poverty seems like the most difficult to you (ex: not knowing when you will have your next meal, not having a home, not having enough clothes to keep you warm)?

Name at least one thing you can do right now to be more appreciative of what you have?
