Because

An appetite for life is often met with nemesis’s who do not wish you to do well

They instead create for you turmoil and Hell

They will do whatever they can to get into your way

To pave your path with thistles and briers that will cut you along the way

Because don’t you know, their life they do hate

They cry each night in jealousy of the success that you make

They want to be like you but they do not know how

So they wrought with iron vengeance to make life a harder plough

Some know that they do this, others they do not

But those who do are fearless and they have lost the plot

Life is hard as it is, if you are sick and you are poor

But with people like these in your life, it makes it even more

Be kind to all, because don’t you know?  We’ve all got the same place to go

Just some can do it and some do not, purely because they’ve lost the plot

They’ve decided life is unfair

They’ve decided they’ve stopped the care

They’ve decided that anyway, things will always and forever be the same

And for them they might be right

Because they’ve bought on this plight

Because they didn’t think right

Because they feel they know

That this is how life for them should go

Because they won’t take responsibility

For all their freedom and liberties

Because they feel that they have none

So their own life they have outdone

And so they toil and wreck other people’s lives

Because they feel that they can’t thrive
