Death Makes Us All Equal And This Is Not A Lie - Poem by Francis Duggan

It is only of those seen to be successful we hear of and read
Their life journey for many to failure does lead
For millions their life journey does not lead to anywhere
The unknown to all of the big World out there.

And yet for all there is a last night and day
That death is the great equalizer was, is and will always be this way
In time the longest lived human life is not long true to say
And there is no inequality where dead people lay

In the slum streets where homelessness and poverty is rife
Young people live without any hope of success in life
Some of them are homeless their parents in jail
And many of them in life are destined for to fail

Whilst many due to bad life circumstance of opportunity locked out
It is only of those perceived to be winners that we read of and hear about
And since everyone is born to eventually die
Death makes us all equal and this is not a lie.
