For Success In The Human World - Poem by Francis Duggan

For success in the Human World most people do compete
The unbridled joy in victory the sorrow in defeat
Many yearn for recognition for honour, wealth and fame
But life's so called winners and losers will one day be the same
Since between the lives of the haves and the have nots the Reaper does not differentiate
On each and everyone of us there is a use by date
You are not seen as a winner and your praises none do sing
But you live as a good person and that is the most important thing
Not seen as a successful person but you work hard for your pay
And to help other people you go out of your way
You are not a champion sportsperson or you will never be a money billionaire
But you are kind and caring and of others feelings you are aware
You work hard for your livelihood do your good deeds every day
And you live as a good person what more of you can one say.
