Mistakes are the core of wisdom

Old Mistakes are irreversible,

New mistakes are inevitable,

Living without making mistakes is impossible,

For we are not perfect.


So forgive yourself your old mistakes,

For what else can you do?

Then go boldly forward,

Knowing you will make make more mistakes,

But also knowing that each mistake is a life lesson.


Accumulating these life lessons,

And passing them on to others,

Is the heart and soul of true wisdom.

For what good is wisdom if it is not shared?

    1. I am glad you liked it. I believe this should be one of the cornerstones of everyone’s philosophy of life. Don’t be afraid to live life and make mistakes. Just learn from the mistakes and pass on the wisdom.
