The Human World - Poem by Francis Duggan

In the Human World we live in of so much suffering, tears and sorrow
Enjoy yourself if you can, live in the now for you there may not be tomorrow
The Reaper who claims every life claims the lives of the young and healthy
The poor the ageing and the frail as well as the very wealthy,
Enjoy yourself whilst you still may life is not worth the worry
On the Reaper's list you may well be next and time is on the hurry
At any time Nature's Reaper the life from you can sever
People like all life forms to life come and go but Nature lives forever
Nobody will live forever more at least I don't know of any,
Tomorrow will not dawn for everyone though it will dawn for many
Some people not happy with sunshine or not happy when it's raining
You are not poor your health is good then why are you complaining?
The happy one be it he or she does spread joy in their greeting
And most people will tell you that such people are worth meeting.
