Because It Is Right

Written by: Maria Cecilia San Juan

Because It Is Right

If you are mad for missing a mark
Or failed someone though you have tried
Felt a pang of guilt inside
Cheer up, lift your head up,
Because cheerful countenance is good and right

Though you are hurting inside
For being left, groping in the dark
And your whimpers and cries aren’t heard outside
Open your window, welcome the light
Because it’s good and right

When you want to shout and turn around
Because you were pricked and ducked in mud
Don’t gloat and strike a whack
Against those whose plans are bad
Because your patience is good and right

When heart is stricken with blades so sharp
And your esteem is rocked and crushed
Give time for grief and never hide,
Lest it lingers like illness, destroying life
Find serenity ,Because it is good and right

And how you wonder, why good and bad pass by
And life begins and ends in one’s demise
Seasons changes as with time
Sun rises, sun sets with day and night
Oh! I know it is good and right.
