WHEN I WENT WRONG
In the shimmers of life I never went wrong,
In the merry of life I never went wrong,
In the don’ts of life I never went wrong,
But In the dos of life I often went wrong.
When I helped, I went wrong,
And when I didn’t, I never went wrong,
When I was relevant I never went wrong,
When I was irrelevant I often went wrong.
When I trusted I went wrong,
When I didn’t I never went wrong,
My tragedies reminded me of my wrongs,
Where in the mirror of life I lay upside down.
When I deviated I went wrong,
And when I didn’t I carried on headstrong,
For there will be moments of rights,
That will later appear as wrongs,
And moments of wrongs that will appear as rights.
So one day I asked myself what is right and what is wrong?
And gently it said what calms you is right,
And what doesn’t is wrong.
And with all those who wronged my right,
I remain calm.
As sadly, I know how often I went wrong.
