Life Can Be A Battle

Life can be a battle even for the brave and the bold
And does not become any easier as one grows old
In the Human World the minority are of the chosen few
Though to this you may say tell us what is new
Pity the children born into poverty
They come to know of how tough life can be
Homeless as teenagers and living rough
Life's journey for them destined to be tough
Life can be a battle if you are on the wrong side
Of what is known to many as the social divide
No big lavish parties on the poor side of the town
Those who live there strangers to wealth and renown
Where many are down and all but counted out
And the battle of life there they do know about.
