Pride and our Mistakes
The things in our lives that pride gets in the way of.
Foolish pride that we loathe to get rid of.
The mistakes we refuse to admit.
The forgiveness we painfully omit.
We forgive, but do we really? We relive the pain endlessly.
Punishing our hearts excessively.
We trust not anymore, for we have been scarred
The scabs remind us of our lapse in judgement.
Maybe, that misstep was meant to be, we never think.
Maybe that mistake was best for me, we never believe.
We learn every day, with every step.
There are no highs if we haven’t walked up from our lows.
There is no joy if we haven’t tasted hurt and pain.
Get moving with your life!
Forgive, forget. Accept, Learn.
Make mistakes and be proud of the lessons you learn.
Chuck pride away and embrace failure. Build on it, then move on from it.
Be great. At being great.
