Mistakes are a burden we must bear
when they are made.

There's no turning back
once the act is committed.

We all make them
throughout our entire lives,
for they are inevitable.

Our lives are shaped by them
as we move forward
and deal with our results.

Our mistakes make us grow
in many ways
and can help us deal with life.

We will never be perfect,
for we will always make new mistakes,
but we can be better.

What's important is that we learn from them
and do our best not to repeat our past.

    What you write at the end there is spot on: mistakes are fine and we certainly all make them but the trick is to make sure we use the experience positively and not make the same ones again.

    Well done,
