Our Mistakes

entry picture


How often we make mistakes

And lose those who are dear.

We go to those who our hearts break,

Do not notice the only one who is near.


Trying to catch somebody's fancy

We run away from the nearest one.

Forgetting your fiancée

The betrayal was done.


We run to the one who once has left us,

We ask that one again for help.

As a result we see just a fuss,

Sometimes even a yelp.


We don’t notice the one who is sincere.

Yes, we everything to enemies forgive,

But to those who are really dear

We so often do not believe.


We wait a forgiveness from our friend,

We want him our life to understand,

We would like him to be patient,

We don’t want him to pretend.


We don’t want to suffer another's pain,

We would like our peace to remain,

Our pain we try to give to others,

But it can be accepted only by mothers.


That’s how we lose our happiness,

That’s how we find loneliness,

We just walk after the ghost,

Without understanding what was lost.

Beautiful insightful poem, Larisa! I think everyone makes (and regrets) these same mistakes in life some way or another, unless they live in a cocoon - this just shows how alike we all are under the skin!
