Life Wasn'T Meant To Be Easy - Poem by Francis Duggan
'Life wasn't meant to be easy' a quote from George Bernard Shaw
But from that familiar saying your own conclusion you draw
Those words maybe for the masses for those who drudge on and then die
But life wasn't meant to be easy to everyone does not apply.
Not to the children of royalty or to the privileged few
Those who have only known good times and hardships have never been through
Life for them meant to be easy lean times they cannot recall
And life wasn't meant to be easy is not for one and for all.
When he was Prime Minister of Australia back there in his glory day
'Life wasn't meant to be easy' Malcolm Fraser used to say
But perhaps he ought to have said instead 'feel glad just to be alive'
To poor families on low incomes who struggled just to survive.
Life wasn't meant to be easy those words will always apply
To the many on low incomes who suffer through life and die
But not to the children of royalty or to the privileged few
'Life wasn't meant to be easy' those words were not meant for you.
