Not Everyone Can Be - Poem by Francis Duggan

Not everyone can be a World Champion and not everyone seen as worthy of note
And not everyone can be a renowned novelist and not everyone can be a famous poet
And though most do hope that they will become wealthy not everyone becomes a millionaire
Amongst the World's billions of people the homeless and the paupers are not rare
Us human beings are known to be competitive for success with each other we compete
And though only one can be the best in the town the ambitious known to live on every street
For every winner there are many losers that's how it is and that's how 'twill always be
And not everybody are blessed with life's choices though some with that will even disagree,
Some people need success in such a bad way that they slowly become addicted to greed
A million a year profit for them not enough of money the more they have the more they seem to need
Why this should be you need not have to wonder we are driven by the desire to succeed
A book on homeless people never becomes a best seller stories of the have nots few do wish to read
Not everybody born to be successful though to be a failure none would wish to choose
The winner is the one who takes the glory but for one to win so many have to lose.
