I Try... by Ashley Pannell

I try to be happy, because I have been sad.

I try to be calm, because I have been angry.

I try to be kind, because I have been cruel.

I try to be open minded, because I have been set in my ways.

I try to be selfless, because I have been greedy.

I try to be humble because I have been vain.

I try to be wise, because I have been foolish.

I try to think of others, because I have only thought of myself.

I try to be positive, because I have been bitter.

I try to be brave, because I have been scared.

I try to be friendly, because I have been mean.

I try to love many, because I have hated more.

 

I try to be good.

 

Because I know just how evil I can be.
