Poor can mean different things to different people. The meaning of poor is lacking the money or the means for an adequate or comfortable life. Just because someone calls you poor does not mean that you are. You and only you know how your life is and how it is going to go.

Poor can mean you do not have as much as what the average population has for income or personal savings. It can also mean you are not efficient in a certain area of expertise. In this situation, poor would mean you do not have enough money because you may not have a job or have anything to support yourself with.

Poor is very subjective and relative to people. If the amount you make is barely sufficient for your necessities then most people would probably consider you poor. However, it also may just be that you don't have luxurious goods such as a nice car.
