The Life Journey - Poem by Francis Duggan

Some in their homeplace their whole lifetime do stay
Whilst others migrate to Lands far away
Some die young and some live to grow old and gray
'Tis all in life's destiny as some like to say
The Reaper eventually claims the lives of all
The wealthy and famous to his scythe does fall
The woman on average by a few years outlives the man
But the longest lived human life in time not a long span
The journey of life one day has to end
We are born as mortals why otherwise pretend
We like to retain good memories of the past
But we grow old so quickly and time does go fast
The longest lived human life in time not a long span
So try to be happy and live for as long as you can.
