The Value of a Mistake

The Value of a Mistake

From some painful mistake somewhere in our past

A memory will plague us and help to attest

That action before us, the things that we do

May have consequences we don’t want them to.

The cost of education is expensive, you know,

And money is seldom the force of the blow.

Embarrassing moments keep us from repeating

Some major faux pas, though the blush was but fleeting

Or some terrible blunder that caused an uproar

Will not re-occur cause we tallied the score.

So cherish those moments when you discover an error

They’re lessons so precious, they haunt you forever.
