The Other Side of the Story - Giving People the Benefit of the Doubt

A Singular Song

"I" stands alone,
Self-important and tall;
"
I" must be first
Because "
I" knows it all.

"I" can't have fault.
Or admit "
I" is wrong;
"
I" can't change opinions,
"
I" wouldn't be strong!

But after a time
"
I" achieves victorious defeat;
Being right can be lonely,
With one's friends in retreat.

And if "I" is inspired,
To help change "I's" decree;
"
I" can climb up from "I's" rut,
And choose to be wee.
