So Little Of Life's Ways - Poem by Francis Duggan

So little of life's ways i can claim to know
But my wonder of knowledge only seems to grow
We never stop learning as some like to say
And from living i am learning a little each day
To be born without flaws is not our natural way
And for our every mistake there is some price to pay
Your life aim as a member of the human race
Should be to make the World we live in for others a much better place
Some of the wealth you accumulate with others feel happy to share
There is nothing great at all about the greedy billionaire
From life it is said we receive what we give
And it is true indeed that we do learn as we live
And something i learned from life going back decades ago
Is to cherish your friend and to respect your foe.
