Do You Feel The Powers That Be - Poem by Francis Duggan

Do you feel the powers that be are against you and of happiness you've been denied
And your better years are behind you and lady luck not on your side
Your son and daughter in their early twenties live far from you though they phone occasionally
And your wife has left you for another how very unfair life can be
She left you although you did love her and you always treated her well
Life has been so hard on you lately you know how it is Earthly Hell
There was a time when you were happy and life to you did seem quite fair
This the toughest year you do remember as you battle your dogs of despair
Yet you never do complain to others of the tough and sad times you have known
You realize which is insightful of you that they have worries of their own
That life is not meant to be easy to many that well may apply
Though you have your beautiful memories of happier Seasons gone by
Of late you've been burdened by worries and life's cares are getting you down
Yet you try to appear to look happy when walking the streets of the town.
