Name of Song: There is a rightness in all of us

It always easy to see wrongnesses
They’re usually out for show,
They’ll keep you busy figuring why are they so,
But you’re only stuck on your own similars.

There are endless things that are wrong with us,
Otherwise why would be stuck here on Earth,
It’s not that it’s such a terrible place,
But we’re made to feel we can’t get off.

Chorus
The idea of feeling stuck in a place,
Is enough to bring the worst out in anyone,
Everytime you try to reach out beyond your norm,
There’s a wall that you’ll probably run on into.
______

Now this wall is made of things that you’ve done,
And things that you never wanted to face,
But the rightness is actually you recognize there’s a wall,
And that you need to somehow get through it.

That rightness is what you’re made of in truth,
It’s a persistence that keeps all life going,
If no one ever recognized there was a wall to get through,
There’d be not one good reason to go on living.

Chorus
The idea of feeling stuck in a place,
Is enough to bring the worst out in anyone,
Every time you try to reach out beyond your norm,
There’s that wall that you’ll probably run on into.
______

Life is made of obstacles and love,
Take your pick which one you decide to go for,
If you keep handling what stands between you and your goals,
Then your love will be the reward for going on living.

There is rightness and wrongness in all who walk this land,
And a kindness and love that’s always going,
Just the fact that you’re living and interacting with life,
Shows how right you are, more than your wrongnesses.

Chorus
The idea of feeling stuck in a place,
Is enough to bring the worst out in anyone,
Every time you try to reach out beyond your norm,
There’s that wall that you’ll probably run on into.
