Human Nature

Called Home

I become tired of what is labeled as “human nature”,
as if human nature was a limitation to be over come.
I have heard it is “human nature” to be envious, greedy,
and selfish, as if “human nature” were the explanation-
and not the conscious choices one makes.

I want all to remember that empathy, compassion, kindness,
and generosity are all, too, to be found within the nature of humans.

When we witness these, perhaps, we can nod, smile and state, “Ah, yes, that is human nature.”
