Being Wrong by Gary R. Ferris
There’s one thing about being wrong,

That sometimes can be hard.

It’s that lump that you swallow,

When your inward pride is marred.


The pain that you feel,

And that embarrassing taste;

The emptiness inside,

When your plans are a waste.


Where do you go,

When you want to hide?

To erase the suffering,

You feel inside.


You’re afraid to show your face,

To all of your friends.

Alone and ashamed,

Putting off amends.


Does it all matter,

Who is wrong or right?

When your friend is lost

To fear and fright.


It is only human,

To sometimes be wrong.

So swallow it on down,

And come back where you belong.


We are all here,

Waiting on you.

You know deep down,

You belong here too.
