My True Nature - a poem

 

they told me my nature was to be my best

i knew my nature was already perfection

 

they told me that my nature was to compete

i knew my nature was to collaborate

 

they told me my nature was to make lots of money

i knew my nature was to make lots of love

 

they told me that my nature was to want more more more!

i knew my nature was to grow grow grow

 

they told me that my nature was to question everything

i knew my nature was to learn from everything

 

they told me my nature was evil. sinful. selfish.

i knew my nature was life. soulful. selfless.

 

they told me i would follow always and be true to my kind

i knew that i was a leader and i am true to truth

 

they told me my heart, body and mind belonged to them

i knew all was mine as creator. infinite. unconfined.

 

they told me many things

i knew to be first with me

they first thing they said to me

i knew it was for my heart to measure
