Human Nature


It is in our own nature to know what we deserve
To know what we can earn
To know when we’ve made mistakes
To know when we’ve made them rite
To see those who can make it better
And yet we still block them out
We see the people who do care about us
And we blind ourselves with the past
We want to let go
But then feel obligated to hold on
Hold on to the negativity
Hold on to what could have been
And possibly what should have been
But what human nature doesn’t understand is that if it’s gone, then its gone
If it doesn’t come back soon after
Then it is time to let go
Time to heal ourselves
Time to figure out how else we can make ourselves happy
But human nature is hurt and blinded
And though someone else starts our pain
It is us who continues it
It is us who does not allow it to end

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
