Some Of Us

Some of us in our moments that border despair
Do tell ourselves life to us not at all fair
But few wish to know of you when you are feeling down
They leave you to be a sad sack of the town

But the passage of time leave some feeling more wise
And that than them many worse off they do come to realize
In third World Countries of famines and wars and disease
In refugee camps millions of refugees

Even people near to you tonight sleeping rough
Homeless and on below poverty line incomes and doing it tough
They do have life choices of them the  judgemental may say
Those who have never been homeless even for a day

Some of us in our darker moments of self doubt
May ask ourselves is this what life is about
But someone on a  park bench to where you live nearby
Does sleep without a blanket under the night sky.
