So, You Made A Mistake

PoetVids - I am WriteBeLight only in Video Version :)

So, you made a mistake,
You're only human.
But, your game of deflection,
Does not suit you.

Admitting you're wrong,
Is the best path to take.
Don't make up stories,
Fake scenarios, make.

Pointing your finger,
At others is wrong.
It is only with you,
The blame belongs.

You manipulate others,
To ease your guilt.
On twisted facts,
Your foundation's built.

The funny thing most,
The irony of all,
Is the mistake you made,
Was extremely small.

But, your behavior today,
No surprise to me.
It only supports,
That you are weak.

The easiest thing,
Just apologize.
All will be forgiven,
Of this, I surmise.

There isn't evidence,
That this will be true.
But if you change your ways,
People will support you.

We all feel bad,
When we've made a mistake.
Only if unintentional,
There's a lesson to take.
