Sometimes stuff just happens and sometimes it can be pretty serious stuff. We have to learn to handle things and times like this without looking for someone to blame. People make mistakes, that doesn't mean they should be ostracized or "Made To Pay" because we all make mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes can't be helped and sometimes they can. What we need to learn to do is Handle the situation without getting so stressed we make things worse than they are. Where there is a will there is a way.

 

 

 

Sometimes stuff happens,
Sometimes caused by fears,
Sometimes by mistakes we make,
That put us in arrears.

No matter what caused it,
No matter who,
Pointing fingers won't help things,
Get better for you.

It won't help to argue,
And fuss and fight,
To lay blame on others,
Won't make things right.

We may lose some sleep,
And we may shed some tears,
But sometimes stuff happens,
And just seems to smear;

And all the precautions,
You take just don't matter,
'Cause sometimes stuff happens,
And just seems to splatter.
