Not Those To Complain

Though you will never hear him say life is unfair
For years he has been battling his black moods of despair
He is on medication which on his physical appearance does show
Into a fat fellow his body did grow
Ten years ago in his late teens he was quite a famous athlete
Tall and lean and so very quick on his feet
But the sudden onset of mental illness wreaked havoc in his mind
Though you'll never hear him say life to me is unkind
And though no longer an athlete you will not hear him say
That he is one who has known a better day
With his cross in life he has learned how to cope
And of future happiness he is not without hope
From knowing one like him an insight one does gain
That those with heavy life crosses are not those to complain.
