Mistakes


 

Ah, what a prompt!!

A Mis-Take,  no less !!

Well, where do I begin

The ones that I made

unknowingly, unwittingly

But once discovered, roundly

punished??

Or the ones I made

knowingly , wittingly

But yet undiscovered n

unpunished??

The ones that were set

right by me

Or the ones I’m powerless

to ever put right??

The innocent ones

Long forgotten

Or the wilful ones

That still haunt??

**

Mistakes make one fallible

Does repentance

Make one less responsible ??

Mistakes are a plenty

Does remorse

Make me less guilty?

In response to the Daily Prompt:

    This one is really good. A little surprised though … that you feel that you too make mistakes!! I thought that it entirely my domain!!
