Please let me get this right…

Sometimes, despite conscious effort, your ego gets tied

To proving that your viewpoint is the one that’s right

And even in the face of facts that otherwise state

To prove yourself right, all your efforts you concentrate

Hoping against hope to get results in your favor

Losing would make this a futile endeavor

But your ego gets smashed when you fall flat

Your opinion was wrong and that is the fact…


Sometimes the world seems stacked against you

And you intensely, desperately want to

Redeem yourself, and control regain

Being proved right would erase the pain

Of the failures you face, at least temporarily

In your ego a boost you would see

But life keeps hurling difficulties at you

You end up being wrong this time too


Then one day out of the blue

Stars start aligning, and you

Suddenly get more than one thing right

Without putting up much of a fight

Your belief in yourself is restored

You feel more confident than you did before


No one is right all the time, nor is one

Wrong on every count under the sun

The moral of the story is to have patience

In your own abilities, have some confidence
