It Is Not An Excuse - Poem by Francis Duggan

It is not an excuse for you to use for a serious crime
That as a young person you have known of a hard time
Many young people who have known it far tougher than you
Bad things to others never would do
Live and let live to us all does apply
The truth in this saying does seem hard to deny
Others have sinned against me is not a good defense
For you to be used as an excuse for a serious offense
There are plenty of people in every town
Out of work financially and mentally down
Who have never known of a real happy day
Yet they never harm anyone in any way
Though they even have known it tougher than you
To others any harm they never would do.
