Physically You Feel Quite Healthy

Poem By Francis Duggan

Physically you feel quite healthy yet you wish that you were dead
Hang on to your life 'tis precious there are better times ahead
We all have our good and bad days that's life as some do say
Though things not going well now for you good times cannot be far away
For you life is a great battle and you live in despair
Of ever again knowing happiness but you just hang in there
For good times for you may be coming why should you wish to die
That for some death is better than life who ever spoke that lie
You feel down in the dumps lately nothing for you is going right
And life for you has become a battle it is an uphill fight
Few seem to wish to know you when you are feeling down
You walk the streets so lonely like an outcast of the town
Physically you feel quite healthy but alone you shed your tears
Your life is at a low point the worst you've felt for years.

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
A paraplegic due to a motor accident forty years ago
