Ignorance Can Be Bliss

Some people say success comes to us by our choices in life
That it is your own fault if you are in financial strife
They dismiss this thing that is known as destiny
That it is your own fault if you live in poverty
They say of the people who are poor due to birth circumstance
Who of material success in life do not stand any chance
That if they are homeless and hungry and only survive from day to day
That it is their own fault if they live in this way
They are the people who lack in understanding and empathy
Who for those doing it tough cannot feel any sympathy
The people who believe on how you live is by choice
And their's sad to say not a minority voice
That all poverty is not self inflicted the point they do miss
But then as is said ignorance can be bliss.
