What Are We Only Mortal Beings - Poem by Francis Duggan

I am confused in my thinking of that why should I lie
What are we only mortal beings born into life to die
Many of us give life to children so our genes will live on
When we have gone forever to the forever gone
There are so many people in the bigger World out there
Who are Homeless and Stateless and not wanted anywhere
In a Human World of too many people too much poverty
And only in the minds of the credulous there is equality
From fear of torture and famine so many do flee
No place in the World for a poor refugee
Millions of a fair go in life by circumstance of birth denied
And the gap between the haves and the have nots has grown ever wide
And I can only wonder what life is all about
And my worth as a person I often do doubt.
