Wake up and realize
That you are too hard on yourself
Do you know how many people
make mistakes every day?
Do you know that they don’t cart
That burdens with them all their lives?
You are permitted to choose wrong
You are permitted to try again
You were never shaped to be perfect
If we knew all the conundrums before we came across them
How would we be able to grow and learn?
You are on a different path
Don’t compare your footsteps
With those who went before you
Or even those walking next to you
They have their own issues
Our paths might be connected at times
But no one’s journey is ever the same
Why not forgive yourself for the faults of yesteryear
You are the only one who are keeping track
Of things that cannot be undone
