The mistake!

Why gaze so long at that mistake?
Though you cannot erase and remake
Do you know you just can’t unmake?
So stop worrying and heal your heartbreak!

A mere mistake and that is okay
And don’t bother what men say
Though it pricks you and gives sorrow
Remember the sun will rise tomorrow!

It’s just a stumble and a moment’s fall
It doesn’t conclude your strength overall
Still you may walk beneath the sun
The race of life may yet be won!

Learn from mistakes to not repeat
That’s the way to conquer the defeat
Wisdom gained you should hold fast
Brighten your day and forget the past!

Mistakes can be terribly dread
But it’sΒ past, it’s over and it’s dead
Accept and learn the lesson instead
Remember, there’s so much life ahead!

  3. We find it hard to let things go, especially when we know they could’ve been better. Mistakes only show how not to do certain things, always a lesson to be learnt. Nice post. πŸ–€πŸ–€

  4. Actually sometimes when we try to do something new we often make mistakes and the next time we become cautious not to do the same. That’s why I think may be our mistakes make us more skilled πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—
