So Try To Enjoy Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

You will only find earth-worms where dead people lay
And every day we live one nearer to our last day
And the longest human life in time not a long span
So try to enjoy life and live for as long as you can
We only have memories of yesterday gone
Today is all that matters and time ticking on
The past has gone forever though the good memories we retain
And we pay in some way for the life experience we gain
For their idea of success people with each other compete
To be best in the neighbourhood and best on the street
To be best in the World and known Worldwide
And every setback to our aspirations a dent to our pride
Yet a similar fate is awaiting us all
To the scythe of the Reaper we eventually will fall.
