The Self Seeking Are Many - Poem by Francis Duggan

'Tis true men and women are different and little in common we do share
But we all own the flaws we are born with and good men like good women are rare
The goals we have for ourselves in life we do pursue
But if we lack in respect for others to honour we cannot be true
You may be the highest achiever in your side of the town
But if in your climb to success you have dragged others down
Then to Karma for you there will be some price to pay
What goes around comes around as some like to say
To help others good people go out of their way
And they do perform their good deeds every day
Our need for success and recognition is not hard to explain
But there's more to human life than always seeking self gain
The self seeking are many but the truly good few
On saying that I'm not saying anything that is new.
