Right thing is always not the nice thing
The wrong thing is rather tempting.

Make the mistakes, I say
Even when you know it’s one
You cannot know for sure
If it really really was such, unless
You have done and seen it beyond.

I’d stick to the not-so-right
Toeing the line,
Saying, it ain’t right
But no one said-
It all be wrong either.

So here I go-
Brushing shoulders with the Devil
Making deals that’s neva’ gonna hold
All for a joyride, a jump from the cliff
A path not taken, by the smart and the bold
All for learning,
As I hit rock bottom-
It was a mistake after all.

P.S. One episode of “How I Met Your Mother” inspired this one- Lily and Ted have this conversation about why to make mistake even though you know it’s a mistake, so that never in your life will you have to wonder whether it was actually going to be a mistake! Whew! All this weird not-really-a-poetry poetry keeps my blog and my on-and-off writing skills afloat. ~G.

    they are right. sometimes you have to make that mistake, just so you can add it to the 'been there done that' list

    ps: at least you are still writing! cheers to that!


  2. Didn't know that a sitcom could inspire so such wonderful lines.

    I'd say we should try everything atleast once. Not for the sake of boasting it to friends but just for the experience.
