Some Tell You In Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

Some tell you in life you can be what you choose
Still for one for to win another has to lose
That is how it is and it will always be
Though many with what I say may not agree
The child born to poor parents in the poor side of the town
Is one not destined to wear the monarch's crown
By circumstance of birth it does seem he or she
Must struggle for to rise above poverty
From life it is said we receive what's our due
But that as we know is quite often not true
The child born of poor parents has a tough life's journey ahead
From Poverty Street few success stories we've read
And the stories of heartbreak have never been few
You may say to that tell us something that's new.
