Not Everyone Has Life Choices - Poem by Francis Duggan

The majority of the wealth of the World is owned by the few
But to this some might say in this there is nothing new
But in a Human World where the gap is increasing in the social divide
Billions of poor people due to lack of opportunity of any success are denied
Those who say everyone have life choices do not have it right
For the millions of homeless people and millions in refugee camps life is an uphill fight
To fifty per cent of the World Human population life choices does not belong
Those who tell you otherwise does have it wrong
In most cases life choices seem tied to birth circumstance
The children born to poverty stricken parents of any success in life stand little chance
Everyone does not have life choices despite what some do say
Life is not or never was or never will be this way
It is not anyone's choice to be homeless and hungry on the street
In a World where billions of people for success do compete.
