Rubbing Out Life's Mistakes - Poem by Lil Davis

Spelt it wrong?
Here's a rubber just rub it out.
I coloured outside the lines,
I drew a crooked line.

That's ok, rub it out and start again.
Mistakes made on paper so easily fixed.
If only we could rub out life's mistakes so easily.
My life's page has become messy and smudged.
full of wrong turns and mistakes.

It's a shame i can't rub it out.
There is no rubber for mylife's mistakes

    I agree to what Luis Estable said and our life is only for us where we can decide the path but should be not a wrong one!

    Yes, you can`t undone the wrong you have done, but you can always start anew; start again; learn from passed errors and make your life better. Try to keep this in mind. To dwell in the past is not only a waste of time, but is never a productive thing to ever do.

    Take care now and thanks for the easy to understand and see simple piece.!
