Hidden carpet of wrong turns ,
take me to the skies,
lead me on , beyond the ways
I couldn’t pass by.
Hear me out, oh Wrong turns!
don’t make my life a lie,
I chose you over
all that life offered without any spite.
You were so tempting and conniving
Oh Wrong turns!
I was Eve , you – the Serpent,
You bit me, you hissed,
even my tears I risked,
I lost a lot, Oh wrong turns !
Your carpet holds the dead remains,
you snatched away, you gnawed at me,
you left me brutally mundane,
I repent though, Oh carpet of wrong turns!
I repent not thinking wise,
but the lessons you gave,
you made me so brave,
I’m starting to believe, I can rise.
Flying through you , oh carpet of wrong turns !
I’m learning to live my life,
And so now when I choose the right,
I remember how you taught me
from wrongs how to reach out into the light,
So hidden carpet of wrong turns,
within me you reside,
take me over and above my fears,
help me build my might in this fight.
Choices that we think are wrong. Or have wronged us, in some way or the other, aren’t actually wrong .
There is something right in them. Look harder and someday you shall see what I meant.
I have learnt far more better certain amazing things about life deeply through my wrong turns. No , there wasn’t just once I was wrong, I’ve been wrong a great many times, but I’ve learnt something always and made sure to be wise.
But sometimes it’s not about being wise or practical or living how you are expected to, sometimes it’s about intuition, it’s about feeling something right in the moment, these situations may be right for that moment and wrong in all other, but that doesn’t mean , it’s wrong entirely. For the moment it was created, that choice you made was meant to be, whether wrong or right, everything is fated, it is bound to happen, one way or the other, whatever we choose to live with or depart from, essentially is a part of a much bigger beautiful plan by our God.
So dear there, don’t feel disheartened about being wrong, or choosing wrong , stop feeling disappointed, repent though, work hard to forgive yourself and seek forgiveness where needed, work harder to understand the depths of the lessons hidden in this carpet of wrong turns.
As humans it is pretty normal for us to fall prey to it, don’t be too hard on yourself though,
learn to let go of this carpet when it’s time,
learn to heal,
learn to feel that things happen and life stops for no one.
Move dear, move forward,
move into the light that awaits ,
whether right or wrong, you will find a way.
Stay hopeful. Stay blest.
