What Constitutes Success - Poem by Francis Duggan

Like all other life forms us humans are born to die
And what is life about ask one other than i
For of life and it's meaning i cannot claim to know
I have so much to learn though old i do grow
There is much to learn of life i have come to realize
And to know i know little of it is not any surprise
But we learn as we live the wise one does say
And we never stop learning life is this way
I often do ask myself what is life about
When the characters of many of the successful do have on them doubt
In a World where billions of people compete for success
The laws of honesty and fairness many happily transgress
And what constitutes success why ask me anyway
I only know we are born for to die one day.
