Am I Wrong?

Sorry to all you who look here to laugh. This poetic attempt was not intended to be funny… I just needed to get it out and felt this was a good place to do it.

A little background for this poem: I saw my ex-wife again earlier. She is more of a mess than she ever was. It felt like a huge release melted over me. Some deeper understanding for a moment, if you will. I can truly say that I have finally forgiven her for cheating (and no longer pity her either). It still feels a little weird though.

 

When I see my ex-wife doing worse than me,

Am I wrong to barely choke back a laugh?

If I feel no remorse that what once was just could not be?

Am I wrong when I do not care to hear her latest gaff?

Am I wrong? Am I?

Am I wrong to curse this clown I’ve become?

Wrong for falling up when falling down?

To see this “one true love” I once had (so dumb…)

Am I wrong for casting her out on the town?

Am I wrong? Am I?

When breach of trust sears your soul,

And all close round you the Bible quote,

Left standing dead-alive, a gaping hole,

Am I wrong as I just ago wrote?

Am I wrong? Am I?

Forgiveness comes in many a dire guise,

Peace of mind grows healthy again, slow,

Happiness be found in thoughts of the wise?

Am I wrong to laugh that I can grow?

Am I wrong? Am I?

    Whether you’re right or whether you’re wrong, it’s not going to matter in a hundred years. So don’t worry about it and get on with your life! 🙂
    Cheers!
