79. Silver Spoons !

 Some people have it All..
Cos' they're born with a Silver Spoon !
No Struggles ! No Problems !
Everything laid out on a platter for the taking !

Some people, they live on the Edge..
The edge of Poverty ! The edge of Drudgery !
Sometimes even the edge of the Earth !
Everything's a struggle..

Everything's always Blood , Sweat, & Tears !
As always in life, the Wheel of Fortune..
It doesn't stand at one place in your life.
The ups & downs of daily living.. Is a lesson learnt in Time..


Soon dark days will surely be gone..
And bright blue skies dawn a new Day !
Bringing Hope & Joy & Life renewed..
And a whole new World of Possibilities !
