The Tough Side Of Life

The tough side of life you say you have known
But others they too do have cares of their own
And so many people with sad stories to share
Those who know of the hard life have never been rare
So much poverty in the big world out there
The poor of the World can be found anywhere
Even in the wealthiest of Cities some of the homeless do dwell
The people who know of life in earthly hell
Poverty you will find in varying degrees
In a Human World of millions of refugees
Poverty is on the increase and it does seem sad to say
That the homeless in numbers increasing by the day
At least one hundred poor people for very millionaire
This does seem all wrong doesn't life for some seem unfair?

Most People Live At

Most people live at or below the poverty line
And can only afford to drink the cheapest brands of wine
And cannot afford to pay rent so are condemned to sleep rough
They know about life and that life can be tough
Even poverty can be at varying degrees
In the Refugee Camps of the World millions of refugees
The people of drought ravaged and war torn Countries with nowhere to go
Who know all about suffering and hardship and woe
Those who talk of life choices have got it all wrong
Only to the privileged by birth such things to do belong
For every millionaire many in poverty
This is how it is and it always will be
So much inequality in the Human World of today
And that does seem a sad thing for to have to say.

I Know Of Life

I know of life it is not meant to be easy though some advantaged by birth it does seem
To live as poor to none is an advantage poverty does little for one's self esteem
And yet for one to grow rich many seemingly grow poorer in a fair Human World it would not be this way
Though some will tell you we have our life choices words such as this seem easy for to say
What life choices have the poor luckless children who live homeless on Poverty Street
In their young years life for them is an uphill battle life's toughest challenges at an early age they meet
What chance in life have they of being successful not very much at all it would seem to me
Only the very most determined person can rise above the drag of poverty
In the Human World the social gap keeps widening it grows a little bigger by the day
That the majority of the World's finances controlled by the minority does seem a very sad thing for to say
But the Human World has been this way for centuries this is how it is and it will always be
And sadly things have not changed for the better in the early years of the twenty first century
For most people life is far from easy this does seem a fair thing for to say
And winners they always will be grinners and in life it has always been this way

In Life Every Day

In life every day a new challenge to face
Well at least for many this does seem the case
For millions of people it is a struggle to survive
Circumstance of birth of opportunity in life them does deprive
Some will tell you poverty is relative and can come in varying degrees
But in a World of millions of homeless people and refugees
One must say among the Planets human population poverty is on the increase
What the Human World needs is freedom from war and hunger that would lead to prosperity and peace
Sad for those who are doing it tough in the Human World of today
That many of them destined to die young does seem sad to say
Some will never know of success though hard for it they do try
The fair go to all to all does not apply
For some to grow wealthy many in poverty
Suppose this is how it is and it always will be.
