For Some Life Is A Hard Journey - Poem by Francis Duggan

For some life is a hard journey it is uphill all of the way
And every day of life for them is just another day
Of struggling for survival but still they battle on
The ray of hope remains with them that all is not lost and gone
The children of poor parents they know of poverty
But they can only live in hope of better times to see
And that hope does spring eternal so happens to be true
And if they have a change of luck it only is their due
Of the have nots of the World we hear of every day
And those of them who have jobs only work for small pay
The social gap is widening and that does seem sad to say
And the poor do not grow wealthier they just grow old and gray
And thousands do grow poorer for every new millionaire
And only the very wealthy will tell you that all in life is fair.
