Becoming Human

A simple concept:
Unconditional regard.
Caring, Supporting, Being there…

Yet harder to master:
Prevailing self-interest.
Egoism, Manipulation, An illusion…

Overcoming instinct:
The fight within.
Conflicting, Warring, Winning the game...

To become human:
Growing beyond.
Altruism, Devotion, Joining together...


A simple concept,
Yet harder to master.
Overcoming instinct,
To become human.

Lady Courtaire
I absolutely love this; your own wisdom and unconditional regard for those around you shines through. "Overcoming instinct to become human" is such a powerful thought in its simplicity.

(I don't recognize the form; is it one you've invented?)
