We Hear Of - Poem by Francis Duggan

We hear of the sisterhood and brotherhood amongst the Human Family
But each of us are on our own or so 'twould seem to me
Even the most generous of people are self centred the main emphasis is on I
But all of our lives are not dissimilar we breathe, sleep, drink, eat, work and live and die.

The one destined to live forever has not been born yet
And many waste their twilight years in the harbouring of regret
That they would have done things quite differently if they had a second chance
Though success or lack of it would seem mostly due to circumstance.

We are all sisters and brothers you hear some people say
Though many have different religious beliefs and to a different God they pray
And many far too many find it so hard to forgive
And yet so many yet to learn of how to live and to let live.

We hear of sisterhood and brotherhood these are words and nothing more
But one could travel in this World from the north to the southern shore
And not meet two similar people who are similar in every way
'Tis our differences that makes us interesting a wise person once did say.
