People Do Make Mistakes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sometimes people do make mistakes.
I've made some.
And who has not made a few?
But not knowingly at the expense of others.

And those who excuse these activities done,
As errors made unconsciously...
With proclamations for a wish to be forgiven,
Need to know how it feels to receive payback.

Directed and unmistakable.
And inflicted with the ease in which they were made.
With a consciousness applied and lessons taught.
To awaken anyone daring to use these excuses in the future.
