Everyone commits mistakes,
It makes you alive,
Countless they’ll be at every stage,
Through them you shine.
Out of the many,
3 stand out in the crowd,
Blunders one might call it,
Such are the mistakes I own.
First is a flaw in our society,
We don’t teach our kids curiosity,
Never question the elders even when in doubt,
Was the first big mistake I made about.
Second is an emotion I couldn’t control,
Always felt alone even with people around,
Rebellious, I had come of age,
I was a raging bull in my mind and they thought I was a sage.
Third was the final straw,
I was mocked and controlled all the time,
I screamed yet no attention I could draw,
I ran away, in the nick of time.
Coward I call myself,
Did I learn anything at all?
Looking back the only solution I found,
Acceptance is the only key I want.
