In Understanding People

In uderstanding people I've a long way to go
And even those close to me that I think I do know
I do not know that well I've come to realize
The workings of Human Nature never cease to surprise
The words of a cynical one I recall
Everyone for themselves and God for us all
The one who first said that may seem a lesser light
But that person though cynical may have been right
A scientist or psychologist or psychiatrist in the World one could not find
Who would understand all of the workings of the human mind
My long standing friends with fondness I recall
Though I feel that I do not know them well at all
And when I dislike in my friends some of the things in them I do see
Those are the things that I do dislike in me.
