When babies are growing
they make a lot of mess and mistakes,
we let them because we know
that is how they get to learn.
Why should it be any different to us.
We ought to commit mistakes,
suffer the pain of consequences
at times and that is how we grow.
We know better when we learn
from our previous mistakes.
All this is called self forgiveness,
daughter of self love.
They say learning to go back
and reread our own chapters
without feeling like we want
to set all of our pages on fire.
