Human Nature - Poem by Kaila George

Why dose human nature
make life a misery
Never really knowing
the paths you chose to lead

For some their lives are easy
for others not so good
The consequences of actions
often blind the good

At times in life you feel
right choices you have made
But then you start to see
those choices weren't meant to be
The regrets that often stem
From bad choices in one's life
Makes you feel unworthy
to live a better life

So how does one learn
to forgive one self's mistakes
That has hurt so many beings
and made them weary of your plight

Is it true what people say
You learn from your mistakes
are you careful not to make
another foolish mistake

So now I take a step
Towards healing all my regrets
and hope that one day
I'll be a better human being


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is true is'nt it, I mean with out mistakes in your life how else can you learn to move forward.

    A nice poem well written to capture the essence of the piece and poet's convictions. One must choose to let go errors of the past, forgive oneself and learn to take things in stride. A good conscience is a continued Christmas. Thanks for sharing Kaila. (Report)Reply
