    I thought money grew on trees...
    and children learned to feed themselves...

    Yet found that life is a pertinent thing...
    based on the belief of a human beings' dreams....

    I thought that kindness heels all wounds....
    And spread the world like wildflowers...

    Yet i found that it was used as an advantage to the opposite end.
    I learned that it heels your wounds...
    But not the Recipient....

    I thought that... one would appreciate the blessings...
    Giving by another... The love... shared between another...

    Yet I found that it was used..... ..... and just used...
    In sorely not greatful nor thankful for blessing given by another...

    I suffer... due to the difference...
    the misconception... and the deception...
    given and shown through us as human beings...
    feening off anothers failure....
    Yet imperfection... A.K.A sin....
    Is bound to our human nature....

    Shaneak.......

    I can defintely relate to this,
    but I find if you keep the same
    heart within....you will get your blessings
    and appreciation in other ways.
    The problem comes when a person
    becomes cold and callous from
    mistreatment........as you said
    its human nature.
    Some people's nature is not
    like yours. Thanks for this read.

    Hi Shaneak

    This is a great piece. I agree with Epip. It's important not to allow others behavior to change what's in our hearts......

    Nice to see you. You were missed. :)


    Madd Sistahly Love :heart:

    i'd say it all depends on whose lead one follows to determine what or to whom one's nature is bound, be it God, self, or the devil.

    some people are not caught up in all o' dat shadiness.

    Thanks!!

    Epip: thanks you for your kind words of wisdom...

    Coco: Hello Ms. Lady!!! Hows it been? And believe me... you guys were missed...

    Rich: I plan to spread love all around the world..... even if they don't want it!!! :D Thanks for the read!!!

    J'jiah: I've learned regardless of beliefs, be it religion or society influtential... good or bad... faith or not... people still act in that way... forgetting who they are and what is really important and still continually filled with love of self with no appreciated given from the love of others... its just our human nature I suppose... And I also know that some aren't caught up in such nonsense... but they run short and far in between.... Thanks for the read!!!

    Soja: Man you know you got much love from Me.. and mad appreciation... I'm glad you liked it... I needed it to write it.... ;)

    Believe me... when i had typed this up.. someone had hit my last nerve.... (well as much as i could deal with that person). I've come to question the intent of our human nature... our actions and attitudes... mental awareness of ones-self. I often wish i had majored in psychology... lol I truly do believe that my blessing will come when i least expected but my question is why can't some appreciate the good and look for equal means in relation to both parties.... unfortunately they just take... and take... never truly appreciating what was given... Just be thankful....

    I'm glad you liked the read!!!

    i'm living my own experience right now, shaneak...asking the same questions. but the awesome thing is that i have now come to better understand that i have done my part in being that blessing to others...in that...i am truly blessed. thanking, God that i am able to do and be in a position to shed light on others and their situations...even when they do not recognize or seem to appreciate it...HE does. You may not see results through those you've touched directly, but results you WILL see. HE IS and WILL take care of you. Sit back, relax and let us both exercise that patience thang.
