Mistakes


Mistakes
By: Monica Renata
I need to take a step forward
But decided to take a step back
For going forward had uncertainty
And I knew of all that was left back
Consciously planning my decision
Yet I am afraid to fall
So instead I stay in the place
That I have been in for far too long
Trying to revel in perfection
Yet perfection does not reside here
I know this deep down inside
But I choose to not reveal
I can be wrong sometimes
Sometimes I make mistakes
Sometimes my calculations are wrong
Sometimes I forget to love instead of hate
Mistakes of my yesteryears
Still resonate within me
Yet I try to radiate perfection
So all can envy me
But what’s the point of being perfect
Because perfection has no flaws
And with no flaws there cannot be growth
So I will sit still for so long
But I wish to grow so gracefully
I wish to reach my peak
So I shall no longer be afraid of my future
And walk forward undoubtedly
I need to take a step forward
But decided to take a step back
For going forward had uncertainty
And I knew of all that was left back
But after I take two steps forward
Despite my one step back
For my mistakes my be beautiful
And show what I do lack
There is brilliance in uncertainty
There is gracefulness in rising up
There are lessons to be learned in mistakes
So……….
Live life fearlessly
Don’t worry about possible mistakes
Stop trying to be perfect
Fall in love with your beautiful mistakes
Love them
For they helped mold you
For they taught you
For they stick with you forever…
So what are you afraid of?
Why are we so deathly afraid to make mistakes?
The fear of his having a mishap keeps us from venturing on to new things in life?
But why?
I have been afraid
And lost countless opportunities because of this fear
However, when I finally took those opportunities
I learned the greatest lessons in my failures
I am not afraid to make a mistake…….. I know that there are great lessons learned in the faults of life………… -Monica Renata
