11/09/2007 Forgive Your Self - Poem by Coreena Dejesus

I am no perfect person this is true,
What I’ve done is only known by a few,
My dirty little secrets not for public use,
All I can say is sorry I have no excuse.

I do not steal this I can say,
I have done things that betray.
The ones I love I hold very close,
But there the ones I’ve hurt most.

My life isn’t over it’s just begun,
I can’t change the things I’ve already done.
Learn from my mistakes and change my ways,
I know how I want to spend the rest of my days.

    Mistakes are life lessons and if we learn from them than they are no longer mistakes.
    Nice poem.
