Their Own Stories To Tell

Some are wealthy and successful and widely known
And their admirers in numbers have grown and have grown
But those who are referred to as the never do well
Just like the wealthy and successful do have their own life stories to tell
Some will tell you that you can become successful in life if so you wish to choose
But in life as in all things for a few for to win many have to lose
But they know more about life than the wealthiest one in the town
For they know what it really feels like to be financially down
But their stories in book form are never told
Never destined to grow wealthy and famous only poor and old
But since fame in their lives never did come their way
Many are dying with unwritten life stories every day
Their life stories they never did get for to tell
Though they could have told of life in Earthly Hell.
