To Eventually Die - Poem by Francis Duggan

We are born to life to eventually die
The same for the wealthy celebrities as you and i
Life has a beginning and also has an end
Since we are born as mortals why otherwise pretend
A date with Life's Reaper we all eventually must face
The one who does not differentiate between age rank and race
But in your lifetime how you treat others says more about you
Than your money or material successes can ever hope to do
Those with kindness and compassion are great people indeed
And of more of their sort the Human World is in need
They are a credit to their nationality, race gender and creed
And for their future good Karma they keep planting the seed
We are born into life for to eventually die
The same for the millionaire as for you and i.
