What's It Mean To Be Wrong

Updated on October 22, 2013

We Are Human

In the near future I could do something and take a stand

Then find out I was wrong

My father use to say I don't have a leg to stand on

Will I admit my mistake or fight to save face

Even when I know now I have made the error

Well after carefully looking myself in the mirror

It's time to admit I am wrong

Now instead of waiting for the next mistake

Come clean and lets talk about the other day

Even that is a white lie

How about yesterday

Now I feel so much better

Another white lie

Not yet but with practice I can and will feel better

I have learned long ago it's not nice to talk bad about other people

Then again isn't it human nature

To feel good when you make someone look bad

I have so many notions in my head

It's o.k. they deserved it

They had it coming

They would be the first to talk about me if I did the same thing

Then my fathers words again pop in my head

Two wrongs don't make a right

So since I am trying to start fresh

A clean slate so to speak

I will try not to talk about other peoples faults

For many reasons

I wouldn't like it if they talk about me behind my back

So let me just get a few more things off my chest

Nobody is perfect and instead of seeing other peoples faults

Stop and look at our own and see where we need improvement

Before we judge

What gives us the right to think we are so much better

We also like to think it is in fun

What fun could it ever be saying hurtful things about someone else

That is twisted thinking and there is no place for it

So as I think a little deeper and realize my mistake

I admit I was wrong to do what I did

When you are wrong in thought

You will be wrong in action

There is never a need to go there

So wishing you the person I couldn't stop talking bad about

A better thought and I have to start small and work my way up

You have been a friend for a long time

You have done so many good things

I will let my bad thoughts go

I will start on a good note

Followed by a good foot

Then I will feel better and who knows maybe you will change

If not it's your life and you live it the way you see fit

I know I have the toughest time trying to live my own life

Without judging someone else

So I will end with

When I go to sleep tonight

I forgive myself for my mistakes and shortcomings and I have found better more productive ways to spend my time

If there are any faults you do have may you come to the same solution I have found

Life is to short to be petty

Let's see how we can think Grand

Making life happier than it's ever been

For one simple reason

We are all friends

      Michael-Milec Friends can get under your skin and they can say things that are hurtful. I am not sure of the reason. Maybe they just don't think. If mentioned friendships can break up after so many years. Thank you for your comment and your thoughts.

      Hi dream- on.

      Worthy recommended wisdom as a course of action. Maturity adds wisdom , making less mistakes, and if any - unintentionally. Lol. Isn't end of the world. Gossiping is by choice I just don't care about " you" to tell someone else, if I don't tell it in front of you. And doing my best, perfect peace of mind. Good night.

      Voted up and useful.

      Exactly everyone has their faults and no matter what we don't like about another person we do always have the choice of being their friend or not but to talk bad about others just isn't good.
