Right things wrong and wrong things right; just two more things to add to my thoughts at night!
What about the right things I did do, though?! Don’t those ever show?
Not as brightly, it doesn’t seem. Toward the negatives, it feels that people lean.
My wrong things right at least shine bright!
Who cares about the right things wrong?! No one notices them, at least not for long.
There is a lesson to be learned here, I cannot see it, although I feel it is near.
If I try to do right and no one is within sight, do my good deeds shine? Or do people still judge me for every little crime?
If I do things wrong and my bad ways don’t last very long, is this the way I will be viewed? Every person’s thoughts of me skewed?
I guess it doesn’t really matter, no matter what people will always chatter.
I’ll keep doing what I do; hopefully, the right things shine through!
People can judge all they want, one day in their weaving web; they’ll be caught!
Only one can truly judge me… And that’s the lesson. I finally see!
