Life Has Been Good To Me - Poem by Francis Duggan

Any of my past bad experiences are not worthy to tell
Since in war zones and drought stricken regions millions live in Earthly Hell
In the refugee camps of the big World out there
The dispossessed, hungry and homeless not made to feel welcome elsewhere
And sad to say from their bad experiences a minority stand to gain
Compared to them i have no cause to complain
I have never been homeless or Stateless or a refugee
You might say indeed life has been good to me
The tough days in my life i myself helped to create
But of any real hard times i cannot relate
Though my worth as a person i often do doubt
I really have nothing to complain about
When i think of the homeless and Stateless and those in dire poverty
I do feel that life has been quite kind to me.
