Better By Nature - Poem by Cecelia Weir

Some people are better by nature
Than others are by practice.
But we all become better people
When we put our good minds into action.

You can treat everybody right
Just can't treat them all the same.
If we learn to love one another
Instead of searching for reasons to complain.

The grass may look greener
Over on the other side.
But nothing becomes better
Until you earnestly decide.
