Overcoming Admitted Mistakes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Overcoming admitted mistakes made,
And wrongs to have done to anyone...
With one's actions corrected.
And hopefully not to repeat,
The same exact ones or others in between...
That come to learn from,
Is more honest than denying...
How they began.
OR stay to sit,
On the back of a lieing horse.
To prove one can do it to remain off course.

So many today are in the midst of conflicts.
To blame the initiating of their involvement,
As something they did to avoid more of it.
And insist, they do,
Of having no knowledge how these conflicts exists.
But refusing not to participate,
Seems difficult for them to turn away and quit.
With a leaving immediately to quickly depart.

'I don't know why it seems,
People pick me to be in the middle of their 'scenes'.'

~Perhaps you enjoy screaming with the loudest voice.
To do it with it done as a choice to make.
Knowing some attention from others will come.
And that's the way you like it done.~

'But if I turn away,
Many will say I was the cause of it.'

~And they would be wrong?
Right? ~

'Right.
And that's why I'm here to convince them,
I have a right to fight against their wrong preceptions.'

~Why can't you just walk away?
And let people say whatever they want.
As soon as you leave,
That is exactly what it's going to be.~

'Sure.
That's easy for you to say.
And let them put words in my mouth?
I don't think so.'
