Which One Are We?

Is she loving, giving
or manipulative, even cruel?
Can someone be both?
Do we always function
from a position of take
so that even giving
becomes a way of getting
something we want?

I believe people are
capable of great love
of amazing sacrifice.
Is this our true nature
or is that not-so-hidden
dark side who we really are?

  1. I hope and believe it is the former! I have rarely met a truly wicked child in all the years I was teaching. I met many damaged children but only 2 who I considered truly wicked with no mitigating factors.
