Why Somebody's Loss

Why somebody's loss is another's gain
Is something beyond me even to try to explain
Though some who claim to know better than me do say
That i am rather silly for thinking or talking this way
Since this is how the Human World is meant for to be
Only in death of rank and inequality we will be free
For as long as we live life will go on as the same
Not everyone meant to know of wealth and fame
Only Life's Reaper the great equalizer makes all equal one day
The one who on all life forms has the final say
But in life that somebody's loss become someone else's gain
Is how it is and how it will remain
Till the Reaper of lives bring our lives to an end
The one who to anyone is not a friend.
