You May Tell Others - Poem by Francis Duggan

You may tell others of your problems of the hardships in life you have known
And though they may sound sympathetic they do have problems of their own
They may say your's is a sad story of your life in your Earthly Hell
Only for to add of life's battle we too have such stories to tell
I understand people as you are of their hard life justified to complain
But why some wealthy people are whingers is beyond me to explain
Suppose some people are born to be whingers enough of money for them is never enough
Despite their huge assets and large amounts of money they feel that they are doing it tough
The thing known as greed is addictive much does crave for more as some say
Whilst for many survival is a battle a battle they face every day
You may be in financial difficulties but always many worse off than you are
You have a home and a warm bed to to sleep on and you drive to work in a good car
Spare a thought for the poor of the World the people in dire poverty
The homeless, the hungry and Stateless and the famine and war refugee.
