Does It Matter

Does it matter in the end if you travel far and wide
Or if you live till the day you die in your hometown or countryside
Since your life a destined journey that will end for you one day
The longer you live the sooner you will die as some do like to say

In a Human World where billions of people for success do compete
There are many so called losers living on every street
In every village, town and city in the big World out there
The have nots of every Country to be found everywhere

Those who talk of life choices seem a bit arrogant to me
For anyone does never choose to live in poverty
The homeless destined to live in this way is how it seems to be
Though on my thinking on this many would disagree

Up the corporate ladder you may have climbed far
But this does not tell me anything of the person you are
For if you lack in compassion and empathy
You are one of many in mind poverty

You may have all of the things that most people desire
The person many look up to and admire
But your lack of generosity of spirit says more about you
Than all of the money in the World could do.
