Mistakes - Poem by Mitwaly Osman

We all make mistakes
But what follows really counts:
Some apologize
Some philosophize

Reminds me that people
Are always of two kinds:
Sweet and often shy
Proud who just deny

God bless who suffer to make their butter
God curse who utter in hurting another
Let the world goes on
And the faults be gone

    Well said, Osman. Kindness and humbleness don't cost any money but so many people are stingy with it. And yet, these two are the most beautifying traits that humans have at their disposal. See how all kind of expensive creams and even botox are used all over, while these two gems (kindness and humility) , generating the most exquisite beauty are left alone by so many people.
