Overgoing One’s Nature: The Story of Obsession

By nature I mean 
The concatenation of nurture
And whatever else
That leads to an internal
Compass sort of rose
Blooming under circumstances 
Wilting by situations
And it's the latter we must discuss
To over-ripen 
Become soft
At the hand left out in the sun
Burned by exposure
To elements that may have been grasped in the teeth
But not in the totality of body and mind
And that's not spiritual nonsense
It's a combination that adapts to 
Certain environments
And quite the opposite
When storms strike lightning
Into the house 
Where you don't know how
To set up the rods
