Why Worry Of Death And Of Dying

Poem By Francis Duggan

Why worry of death and of dying when you will be forever dead
The present is all that does matter who knows for us what lay ahead
We will die that we know for certain and we only can live in the now
The father of time is our master and to the father of time we must bow
Success and failure are often used words for building one up or putting one down
But in the end does it much matter if you are the most admired one in your town
The Reaper of lives won't ignore you and to his sharp scythe you must fall
He is the one most feared by the ego but the greatest egalatarian of all
What matter of success and failure when at the end they are the same
Genghis Khan was a World renowned conqueror yet he only lives on now in name
The Reaper took the life's breath from him the life of anyone the Reaper doesn't spare
He who claims the life of the pauper claims the life of the billionaire
Why worry of death and of dying we only can live for today
And though you would like to live forever in that you do not have a say.

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

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
