i hate being wrong

Posted: April 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

i hate being wrong
it all boils down to that
like gummy oats
or burned-black rice

i hate being wrong
being wrong’s a negative right
i don’t have to be right
being right isn’t sweet-smelling

being right isn’t security
being right isn’t fearlessness
being right isn’t beauty
being right isn’t courage

but being wrong
it’s insecure and scared
it’s ugly and cowardly

i know more about wrongness
than i do about rightness
wrong may not be my name
but it feels like my birthplace
my birthright is being wrong

no matter what i do
i can take me being
out of the wrongness
but i can’t take the wrongness
out of me being
