sweet mistakes

Written by: Kendra Kautz


i sit here and think

of all i've done wrong

the whispering remnents

of a long ago song

while tragic decissions have created the past

the character built lays new path

without mistakes, goals can't be reached

if the the world was perfect 

there'd be nothing to teach.

we'd never explore our souls and our minds,

never know strengths that are built over time.

the wonder and awe that we see all around, without essence and knowledge

would shrival and drown 

love and contentment could never be felt

by a heart, that has never, disapointment been dealt. 

mistakes may seem bad,

like the end of the world 

but without them our souls 

would never grow and unfurl.
