Awakening: A Bittersweet Ache



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.


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.


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.
