What's the Point of Crying Over Spilled Milk?: a Poem
Since many of us were made by a mistake
a mistake we are, and living under that sign
just from one to another getting a break
with all your mistakes looking bigger than mine.
Then we curse ourselves, but mostly our fate
for things going wrong and our making it so
even when it's gone not feeling too great
thinking of ourselves as of a clumsy pro.
Proverbial milk gets spilled over our pride
and then we promptly cry over the spill
time and time again we foolishly decide
not to ever repeat it in that well known drill.
Gallons of milk same by looks and curses
giving us new chances to whine and wallow
but flow of that milk just never reverses
making us regretful and a little shallow.
For. what's the use of moaning over a mistake
aren't we just rehearsing for another one
so let's accept ourselves for our sanity sake
our imperfections and everything done.
