Awakening: A Bittersweet Ache

Mistakes
Reminders of failure.
Sometimes voluntarily; by design
Other accidental; by default; by habit.
Trying hard to be perfect.
Time goes by,
Days turn to weeks,
Weeks to months and years.

*****

Unable to accept,
We are but flawed creatures.
Truth be told,
There’s no such thing as a mistake.
Only lessons learned,
Accidents. Mistakes. Risks.
Not negative; Always on our mind,
Help us learn and grow.

*****

Learning;
Sometimes from ours, or,
Other’s mistakes.
Are experiences,
Always with us; never forgotten.
Lingering in the back of your mind,
Inventions: only creations of accidents,
And mistakes the secret of knowledge.

*****

Learning;
Doesn’t always mean new.
Sometimes one needs,
To unlearn to learn.
The reasons may not be clear,
Whether good or bad; we’ll learn.
Mistakes. Learning.
Are two sides of the same coin.
