I Would Much Rather Be Happy Than Right

I would much rather
be happy than right.
I would much prefer (with her)
to dance this day than the night.

I always seem to wonder,
although it seems quite contrite:
Why it is that I ponder
what escapes normal sight?

I will not follow my father,
like a bird does in flight.
For I know I’d much rather
not suffer his plight.

I will always want to wander
and will fight for the right
to see the trees beyond her
and trade the shade for delight.

I revere more subtle wisdom
than the severe and right might.
For when the darkness gathers
it is our only bright white light.

I would much rather
be happy than right.
