You Have A Story - Poem by Francis Duggan

Big brothers disciples may call you a never do well
But you have a story as much as they have to tell
Maybe not a story of fame and success
But you have a story for to tell none the less
And success is different in everyone's eyes
For no two think exactly the same as we ought to realize
Some do not judge success on the honours you've won
But by the kindness you've shown and the good deeds you've done
In a success driven age where greed is seen as okay
And the winner takes all things used not be that way
The gap keeps on widening in the social divide
And the idea of a fair go for all seems to all but have died
And the energy of money to the ego is fuel
And those who desire power most are those who do rule.
