In The World Many Unhappy People

Poem By Francis Duggan

In the World many unhappy people and those without worries are rare
And though money can be to your advantage you ask the multi millionaire
If she or he are reasonably happy their answer most likely would be
If you wish to know about happiness ask somebody other than me

Doubtless it is better to be wealthy and unhappy than unhappy and in poverty
The wealthy one without monetary problems though unhappy in ways mentally
The people who are content of mind are those one does not often meet
You will not see many smiling faces walking on the sidewalks of the street

Whenever I meet a happy stranger who smiles at me and bids me good day
This person is doing me a favourby sharing joy passing my way
Such people attract people to them and others of them wish to know
As they carry joy with them and share it and they do have the bright inner glow

There are not many happy people one can say of them a rare breed
But humanity is better for them in it and of more of their sort is in need
Some of the happiness that they have in them with others they are willing to share
In a Human World where so many are burdened with worries their sort are to say the least rare.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed
We do seem so different so different indeed.

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
