Is there a time when wrong is right?
In self defense we justify
Then toss with conscience in the night
To know within ourselves we lied.
Is there a time when pain is thrown,
To hurt, to scar, then walk away
Without the consequences known -
Leave them to mourn another day.
We all have struck with careless words
But then in doubt we feel their pain;
Lamenting sympathy deferred
In our quest for selfish gain.
When in our hearts we were wrong
And we knew it all along.
