A Creation of a New You. Poetry

Don’t you ever wonder how you got to where you are.

Don’t you ever think

yes

just think.

That if you had just

thought

you wouldn’t be in such a mess.

Or

do you take the easy way out,

always blaming others for your own poor judgment.

If so, then how are you to learn from your mistakes

when you apparently make none?

Life is a teacher,

and so are mistakes.

First, recognize them for what they are,

not bad things, not cudgels to beat one’s self over the head,

but treasures and more,

each a jewel upon which to build a hope

a dream

a creation of a new you.
