Right and Wrong

November 11, 2019 life

There is a certain thrill
in feeling right,
when the ego swells with pride,
extolling itself
at the expense of another.

Sometimes the hunt
for right and wrong
is not a search for truth,
but only a struggle
for a stronger sense of self.

And perhaps
there are no bad people -
only bad ideas.

Treat those you disagree with
with compassion and respect,
and perhaps your words will reach them,
and maybe even help to heal
their own troubled, toxic thoughts.
