Mistakes - Poem by anjana menon

there are many mistakes in my life;
but every mistake tells us somethng.
if a teacher scolds,

why to be sad
like i said before

every mistake tells us something
mistake, mistake, mistake
the whole world is mistake
but what is mistake?
no one knows
everyone does a mistake
but every mistake tells us something.

if you do a mistake,
correct it,
dont repet it,
and dont be sad,
as it happens,
but evey mistake tells us something,
which you know,
not me.

if your friend does a mistake,
correct it,
but dont shout
as it creates a bad impression on mistake,
mistakes are just like passing clowns,
but every mistake tells us something
creating mistakes no matter
but repeating mistakes
as mistakes tells us something

if u do a mistake,
admit it,
dont ignore, and sit quitely
understand the mistake u have done,
and always remember
every mistake tells us something.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

oh its my most special poem. as it was my first poem.i got the subject by my friend. actually we had a fight for something and we could not decide who's mistake was it. so after sometime i thought to write a poem and wrote it. it became the most popular poem not only in class but also the whole school.
