Short Story: A Mistake

Updated on February 5, 2012

A Mistake?

What are mistakes? Your dictionary says that it is to understand wrongly, or to misinterpret. I am saying they are the errors you make after you have agreed to some sort of understanding with some one. My first agreement was to my parents and that’s for me the only true place any mistake could be made.

There are your parents thinking that you their child is going to turn out to be the very best child in the entire universe and there you are feeling like you are in the very best anyone can every be , and having no reason not to. Time after time people have come over to take a look at you and time after time you have also opened those tightly shut eyes, to sneak a peek at whom holding you.

As you grow you begin to understand more and your parents or the arms that were holding you all this time are not holding back on what ever it is that you nay ask for and that they know that you need, you may not understand it as yet, but they were once your size.

It’s by your graduating from one stage to another as you grow and understand, it is here that those mistakes are most likely become apparent. With the great parents, as a common reminder, in the process of keeping your contract with them, you will get certain memorabilia’s that will quickly remind you in the future, that just as you look up to those in charge of your life when something is not proper with you, like when you were hungry or wet etc. Well the same way you will have something to remind you that you were not keeping your end of the contract.

That is your main contract with your parents, one that’s to be kept through your entire life. Now I love to say this particular line, because it has always been true, and in every case that I have investigated through my own life, and I have certainly been around a few, it holds strong.

The day you turn you back on your parents , it's almost like turning your back on The Most High God, and you are doomed , you shall surely die!

Great parents, stays on you as often as they know they need to. They are the originators of the contract, so it remains on them to keep, keep it in line, and here is the line I am referring to: They themselves are also in a forever contract with their ancestors, and the true and highest one is none other that the Most High God!

A house divided can never stand! I am one who believes strongly in the sins of the parents, that it will continue to run its course until one of the children comes along and breaks that monotony in other words corrects the mistake. They would not only be doing the work of the Most High God, but saving themselves from being labeled a heathen.

If everyone in your family for generations, have been carrying on a tradition of hated, lets say they were “Racist” there is no better time and no better purpose, for you to grab hold of the reigns and see this as your time to shine and keep shining from that moment on to rid yourself and your family of that evil hatred. If your desire is to be a supposedly great human , how will you feel having an opportunity to let your light shine simply pass you by , while you continuing into infinity.

We were all born with our specific agenda already blueprinted in us; most times life places us in positions that we will never understand how we have gotten there. This is when you can realize that long before you arrived there were others hard at work preparing this position for you. When one becomes selfish and the only thing on his mind is money and power, after his demise you sometimes never hears about him and it’s up to some distant family member way down the line to put their great grand parent’s fortunes to some proper use. What use is you putting your parent’s and grand parent’s hard work to which use. Will they be proud of you? Have you broken the monotony, or are you just:

A Mistake?

      Thanks Caroline , as you know Bob and Michael are my two favorites it takes special things to get on top my music list, it doesn't matter who come after they will forever be the best in my own way. And that's what I mean by unless they are going my way , no one can take me off those two , but they can share their likes, and I will appreciate them for that.

      And again that's where it go back to the for granted piece, after your children and you family and your religion what ever you been through, don't ever come telling me what to and not to do. How it going to look?

      Stay strong !

      Amen Rose ,that's the very least we can do not join that mistake category. So I am quite proud that you know your status because you should.

      I can only say to you what I understand , every religion has it correct for themselves I have nothing to say to them. They have to answer for themselves. I have every type of person one can think of to ask their views on something Adventist, Jehovah Witness, you name them all always ready to answer but I never do , because I understand can't make anyone of them my answer of my problem . Because I know in the end I won't be them but me. Can't blame my pastor on religion or priest of mother, once I have reached an age of accountability. It's on me!

      Thanks as always Rose as I can see the person you are and applaud you to keep up the great work. Remember, Sky would never invite you to church.Only to strengthen your belief.

      Voted up. The Lord never makes mistakes therefore no one is a mistake however there are unfortunately quite a number of people who make their lives a mistake - the evil ones - the dregs of society - but the Lord will take care of them in his own way. I'm always glad that I am one of so many wonderful things that the Lord has made and therefore I cherish my life. God bless.

      Thanks for reading and your thoughtful and wise comment tobusiness.

      That's exactly what I am hoping the read would lead to. After or before it could lead to that unhealthy outcome. Where the blame game starts to play.

      That someone in or out of the family he as you are so graciously suggesting.

      There will always be the good and the bad , but before the entire dynasty goes bad , because it really don't take much in these times to see , because we the older ones have the experience and the expertise, to recognize a bad egg before even trying to hatch get it to hatch.

      As a race I think we are totally excuse less. Am I my brothers keeper , sure you are, not only we you are being beaten to death , and your brother has the means of saving you.

      If only!

      Thanks for that very thoughtful comment?

      Hi Sky, It's a Good message you're sending out, But the family is a complex unit with different dynamics.

      You have good and bad parents, and good and bad children, wouldn't it be nice, if we could just love each other and pull together?

      Thank you brethren Frank . It's the same message every time but coming with as many presentations as I can imagine.

      The Most High will not ask us which religion we are a member of? Same as how good a writer you are, or what's your nationality, or how much money you have. As a matter of fact I don't believe he will have to ask anything , he already knows, that's why it's so easy when you accept the truth , you realize that's its already in you.

      Sincere thanks and blessings.

      Blessings rasta.

      So many people continue to live and not one day will they ask those questions that should matter most to all humans , instead they look to find fault with others .

      Who am I ,and what am I doing here , when answered sincerely , thew outcome can only be , what can I do for you fellow human.

      Since I don't know who holds to morrow , but should know that life and love holds you today.

      Hard for me to imagine mankind , he would take the days of the week, no anger no protest, but he would not take the only force that can make these possible. Hay!

      So I wonder why he is so talkative now and nothing to say when it matters most.

      Thanks for reading and commenting brethren.

      Breaking generational curses is hard. Bravery and faith is necessary.

      You are so right Sky. I am of the belief life comes from our Heavenly Father and He does not make mistakes. We however can choose to deny Him and the life he gives but I believe that is the mistake. Parents can only give to their children what they have been given.

      These blessings or curses may have come from their parents but sometimes as they live their life blessings are included that they didn't get from their parents. These treasures are very important to pass on. What we do with what we are given is the true test of life to me. Not sharing and using what a person is given is a mistake
