    Ben, I'm so glad to see you're back especially when writing things as well as this (I don't expect anything else from you as you'd probably guessed)
    The title did bring a smile to my face as I thought how has a poor man got something good did he steal, did he earn it or was it just by pure luck?
    Then I read on and realise this 'poor man' hasn't necessarily got something extremely good ie a massive house, money or an expensive car but he's got the best thing he could ever wish for nature, family and friends (my opinion) which makes him feel like he has everything in the world.

    I do love the way you worded this and your imagery.

    The leaves change colors as the stages of our lives. We can only accept them as they occur. What other choice do we have!? Great.
