Poetry Friday…

by Edgar Albert Guest 

I do not think all failure’s undeserved, 
And all success is merely someone’s luck; 
Some men are down because they were unnerved, 
And some are up because they kept their pluck.
Some men are down because they chose to shirk; 
Some men are high because they did their work. 
I do not think that all the poor are good, 
That riches are the uniform of shame;
The beggar might have conquered if he would, 
And that he begs, the world is not to blame. 
Misfortune is not all that comes to mar; 
Most men, themselves, have shaped the things they are
