Poems by Marcia – Human Nature


So you’ve had a bad day

You’re angry and tired

Fed up of people

The cheats and the liars

Sick to your back teeth

Of gossip and scandal

You’ve had your fill

All you can handle

You want to shut the door

And hide

From the evil world

That lurks outside

Pretend for a moment

That you don’t exist

Would anyone notice?

Would you be missed?

It’s human nature

To feel this way

The dips in life

Have a role to play

They teach us endurance

And how to survive

To deal with others

On the path of life

So if you think

Today has been a mess

Tell yourself

It’s just been a test

To make you appreciate

All that is good

It’s just life’s way of checking

That you’ve understood.
