Why Pretend

That we are mere mortals why otherwise pretend
We start life in diapers and in diapers our life may end
Death is for all life forms just like you and i
And the longer you live the sooner you will die
Each new dawn to our last dawn brings us one dawning more near
Yet it is only the thought of death that we do fear
For success in life with each other we compete
And every day for us some new challenge to meet
Just feel happy for to wake for to greet each new day
For on how long you live you do not have the say
You desire the comforts in life money to you can bring
And though money it is quite an important thing
Despite your material gains and your every success
Your life is the greatest thing you do possess.
Francis Duggan
