Living with Faults

No matter how much
One tries
One enters knowingly
Or unknowingly
A faulty path
Sometime in life
A perfect life's
Hardly possible.

A fault's like
A crack developing
On a well maintained road
If one has to attempt to repair
Every crack that occurs
It turns out to be impossible
Identify major ones
And repair right away.

A house built
With careful planning
Often we find
The owner say
Some little feature could be
Different to make it better
Maybe such an improvement
Can be made in the next house.

Minor faults're routine
One must take them in stride
Some faults
May be corrected
Some provide
Means to identify future faults
And enable one
To avoid them.

Let faults when they occur
Be harmless to others
Some faults
One must live with them anyway.

    very comprehensive...faults are not bad, but the medium of getting us good in so many ways; believing someone without a fault is not possible...man is liable to err, the only thing is how to put up with these...! ! !
    A fault's like
    A crack developing
    On a well maintained road...is a great analogy! ! ! (Report) Reply
