November 9, 2015 Writer Digest November PAD Challenge/Mistakes


mistakes       my life is filled with them          they are the building blocks

of my existence        right from the start         when given a choice

i made it       without too much contemplation             always selecting

what i hoped       would be the right decision      the best option

my guide             has always been                      do no harm

still          there have been some choices            that i can say were mistakes

even so        each has been an opportunity        to learn a lesson

sometimes the scenic route    has been           best for me

other times     the direct route                  some choices have turned out to be

circles within circles      each mistake or brilliant choice      has been my own
