Compared To Them

I may never be quite secure in ways financially
But i have never known what it feels like to live in poverty
And my hearing okay and i have good eyes to see
The beauty of Nature that is all around me
Of years i have reached the three score and ten
Said to be on average the life span of women and men
Some i went to school with not living today
The lady of luck must be smiling my way
For many survival is a constant fight
So many poor people are homeless tonight
Trying to sleep on a board or concrete floor without blankets or bed
In a disused factory or a draughty old shed
Compared to them i feel quite lucky indeed
Since of any of life's comforts i am not in need.
