I will learn by my mistakes

Updated on December 26, 2010

I will learn by my mistakes

       In the silence of everynight ,

The wind , it speaks to me,

Although it is out of sight,

It whispers, it taunts me,

While I lay in bed, While i try clear My Mind,

Its blows in memories, Those I left behind.

They flood in Like storms

and they crash like waves

They sting like swarms

They torture , I am their slave

They pain my head

And they play and they play

they rock my bed

As I lay as I lay

I want to scream But words refuse to leave

I know I have made mistakes But wind  why do you make me Grieve

I should Have said this, I should Have done that

"But these things can not be changed " I spat !

Life does not come with a guide and it does not run smooth

"I will learn from my mistakes" I whispered, trying to not be rude

So it stopped, and let me rest

Thank you wind, for showing me my best

      Howdy Angel - What a terrific poem. Loved it! It is interesting to be abed and have the wind pay a visit. You just never know what it is going to bring along with itself, do you?

      Hi Angel_In_Disguise,

      I liked your poem very much and I express my feelings in the form of my favorite quotes.

      “I think we all wish we could erase some dark times in our lives. But all of life's experiences, bad and good, make you who you are. Erasing any of life's experiences would be a great mistake.” Luis Miguel

      ~Life is like a combination lock;your job is to find the right numbers, in the right order so you can have anything you want.~
