No luxury life

A life of luxury I’ve not known

Opportunities have always flown

And I’ve been left to struggle and strive

Simply trying just to get by

And though I would love to be cut a break

I keep on going each and every day

Guessing I am learning lessons from this

Eeking out an existence

Smiling through and acting diffident

To those who flaunt at me their affluence

Because it’s not just money and material things

That define the aspects of my being

And I am still and always will be grateful and appreciative for living.
