The poem(s) are below...




Life is like the lottery, Some win, some loose.
Some take to drugs, Some take to booze. 
Some sail through Life, With no problems at all.
Some are like horses in the Grand National.
They take a huge fall.
Some break bones, Some have their hearts broken.
Some are destroyed just by words spoken.
Some loose the will to carry on and fight.
For all they can see is darkness no light.
Some get back up, Despite great knocks.
Some don't so they end up in a box.
