Leading To That Place.

Throughout our lives we make mistakes,

But we must not keep them,

Nor take them around with us.

They can give us a learning curve

And can show us the way.

So each mistake can be used,

Used as a stepping stone

Which can be placed on the floor,

And once there they be used,

Used as the stepping stones

That will lead us,

To lead us to that place,

That place to where we need to go.

    A great piece of inspiration dear Andy, we sometimes kick ourselves to hard for the mistakes but actually without them we cannot evolve. A great thought dear friend. 💖

            So basically, there are no mistakes... Or am I mistaken?

            • Goldfinch60

              You need to realise your mistakes and accept them as experience and move forward in life.

                    Experience at play. Too many carry these stones instead of walking on them. Great insightful ✍️ write.

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Experience just cannot be taught John.


                    • dusk arising

                      So if i have made loads of mistakes (stepping up stones) does that put me on higher ground than you? LOL... am I climbing for a mighty big fall.

                      On another note, is there something in the water... why do we seem to be losing poets from mps at this time.... also lack of posts from regulars (including myself)

                      • Goldfinch60

                        Those stepping stones do take you to a higher place but you have a couple years to reach me yet. LOL Falling will not be allowed as I will be there to catch you from my higher position. LOL.

                        There does seem to be a loss of some members but there are a great many new ones on here.
