Change Thy Nature

Change Thy Nature poem by steven james humphreys

You might wonder

why bad stuff

happens to you

no matter what you try to do

I have always wondered

this about me

I have come to the stark conclusion

it can’t be for any other reason

you see

other than to change thy own nature

we can act differently, yes


but, being different is the big

change most of us are never

ready nor prepared to undertake

in this material world much a turbulent sea

old habits die hard it does seem

and most of us would rather die by them

when being is to doing

like acting is to a day dream.
