--Nature or Nurture--
My desires feed a flame,
that lie inside--
to go unnoticed.
All sits so still,
as if it could hide.
Scorn not the drunken-man,
nor blister the ****.
Rather...
invite the lush,
to brush with death.
Embellished by the bottom,
when the darkness is embraced.
To pass the time,
we pretend not to need.
To forfeit compassion,
and wear greed,
like it were in fashion.
From what directions come the answers,
for the questions of life?
Simplicity must be behind,
all of mankind's purpose.
Though to complicate life even more,
feelings will surface.
Find peace in the balance.

    A very mature and deeply thought through philosophy. I love the simplicity of this beautiful and ethereal capture of Nature's best.
