We Are Not Made By The Mistakes Of Our Past - Poem by Daya Nandan

We are not made by the mistakes of our past,
We are not the only remorseful ones in this world so vast,
We are who we are based off of how we learn from those mistakes,
How we do our best to correct them with the power that determination takes,

We must realize our mistakes and move on to correcting those mistakes,
Correct the wrongs of our ways no matter how long it takes,
Find peace and happiness with not only ourselves but everything around
Find calmness within and unlock hidden potential to rise up from the ground.

Our past does not define us, yet we must never forget it
For it is a part of our making that we are forever tattooed with
it is a reminder of who we once were, and what we have become instead,
An untold story of struggle where most lie hidden in our head

We make mistakes, we go where we are guided, even if it is into the abyss,
But that does't mean we will remain misguided and cannot find a path of bliss,
Do not be mentally trapped, we must make up for those mistakes by moving on,
Rebuilding ourselves, correcting the mistakes on the path we have drawn,

At times it is with heavy guilt, we carry hatred to many points in our lives,
In doing so, we hurt ourselves with our mentally conjured knives,
Our past unchangeable, no matter how much we wish to correct each mistake,
but that does not mean it cannot be conquered, we can correct the path we take,

Our past is as it is implied, It is behind us, moments of time behind heaven's glass,
We should not wasting energy on focusing on those events that have already pass,
For we take precious time away from seeing what we can grow and become,
We will not be aware of changes as well as the opportunities that have yet to come,

We must conquer the past, change ourselves and live for that change,
Go with what is the best for us even if the transformation seems is a little strange,
We must be committed to that change, we must be optimistic under the skies so blue,
We must be reborn in mind, body and soul, we must start our new life fresh and new.
