Negative Eyes

Poem By Francis Duggan

To the good you must only be blind if you only look for the bad
You condemn the son or the daughter for the sins of the mum or the dad
That everyone is an individual you do not seem to realize
And you only can look at others to what's known as negative eyes
On life you don't have a broad outlook your World in itself does seem small
You believe on a fair go for your kind but not on a fair go for all
Suppose the flaws we see in others are the flaws in our own selves we see
In that way we are very similar you are not that different to me
I too have room for self improvement to my higher self I'm not true
And I too will warrant the karma the karma to me that is due
In time our lives do seem a short span and better with your time you can do
Than looking for the flaws in others when the one you should look at is you
Our biological clocks keep on ticking and the longest life not a long span
And you can make the World better to live in by being a better woman or man.

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
