>It’s Not A Mistake

>They say that everyone must make their own mistakes
But why can’t we learn from the road that another takes
Why do some of us feel that the same road will net us a different reward
When the consequences will be something that we can’t really afford
Most of us think we know how mistakes are accurately defined
We believe that all we need is another space and a different time
A mistake is something that you didn’t mean to do
It’s not, he or she did the same thing and now I’ll do it too
When you know the end result of a negative action
Saying it was a mistake might give your soul satisfaction
For those of us who know that was exactly what you intended to do
Saying it was a mistake is definitely not true
A mistake is not doing something just so you can see how it feels
And when you use that as an excuse you make the word mistake lose its appeal
Mistakes are things done on accident not on purpose
And mistakes rarely yields us a harvest of intentional surplus
A mistake is not an excuse for the negative things we’ve done
Or to be used when we do things just for fun
Although we can learn from intended actions just as well
Let’s not call it a mistake because that action failed
Calling it a mistake will not lead to your justification
Nor will it make better for your situation
So let’s not call everything gone wrong a mistake
Just because you wanted to act like you weren’t fully awake
Save the mistakes for when you really need to use them
And not to explain away intentional acts just to diffuse them
