Sometimes you you need to be wrong to be strong enough to fight for what's right

Wrong to Be Right
 
 
 
It’s easy to be right if you fight
 
caring about what’s right.
 
You can say your mind outright
 
treating family or friends
 
as social experiments or turfs.
 
They won’t leave, right?
 
 
 
Wrong can play along when
 
 spite is always right despite
 
knowing what’s not right.
 
It puts up its fists whenever it fits
 
craving contrite, counting wins.
 
They're just spiteful words, right?
 
 
 
Pride is spite’s horse, riding respite
 
to loneliness' inevitable plight;
 
luring one with false light to ignite
 
hate with unrequited love.
 
Sometimes you need to be wrong
 
to be strong enough to fight for what's right.
