The Need To Be Successful - Poem by Francis Duggan

The need to be successful in life to most people apply
Though many never achieve their ambition though hard they do try
For millions that life is a battle is only too true
Though some are all too willing to point out that success comes to where it is due
That life is a battle for many is surely not a lie
They do struggle through life till the day they do die
Some will tell you that this is their life's destiny
Though many with some are known to disagree
That inequality amongst people has never been more prevalent cannot be denied
The gap between the haves and the have nots keeps on growing ever wide
A small percentage of the World's human population has the majority of the wealth and the power
A poor neglected seed never blooms to a flower
The need to be successful to most does apply
Though circumstance ambition has been known to deny.
