A Foolish Mistake is All it Takes.

At times we make foolish mistakes without thinking of the consequences they can have. When the consequences are grave ones, we feel lost, adrift and deeply sorry for what we did, but by then it is too late, for the deed is done and there is no turning back time. Even the most innocent mistakes can be costly to us.

Shattered World.

A world shattered in an instance,
To turn back there was no chance,
Life as it was known was gone,
All there was hope for was gone.

Realization dawned quickly,
Denial was not likely,
Just a simple mistake,
To end a bright future all it would take.

A foolish act done without thinking,
Now a world is sinking,
A moment of fleeing reason,
An innocent flaw by a person.

Like a Kite.

Now fear starts to sink its claws,
A cryptic message meant to give pause,
A warning perhaps,
But enough to let uncertainty split a world in half.

Floating in limbo a person is,
A drift like a kite in the winds,
Fearing each ticking second will be the last,
Dreading the worse to come to pass.

Foolish mistakes will never be repeated,
Now it is too late to feel jaded,
What is done is done,
Now is not the time to lament and moan.

What's left?

We shouldn’t do a crime,
If we can’t do the time,
Yet human we are,
Avoiding mistakes is for many very hard.

Innocent; or guilty,
The decision of the jury,
Was the threat truly carried out?
Or was it to deliver fear and doubt?

Of a foolish act the person is innocent,
Yet for less than that many have not been seen so innocent,
What is the poor person to do?
Wait and pray that’s what’s left to do.

This message is very true. I know someone that said something to her sister in the heat of anger and now she is ate up with regrets. I say we all make mistakes and forgive often cause life is short

I have always been afraid of making a foolish mistake, or even just a careless one.

Once we go down a certain path, it is hard to turn back, almost impossible in fact.

One dive into shallow water, and a broken neck results, shooting up with a drug for kicks and an addiction is started, which will affect our lives forever.

Poignantly written GenkiWorld.
