They Are Mine

The silliest things I ever did
Are too strange to mention here
They still amaze me
Their memories fill
Me with dread and fear

I’ve stumbled in places
I wasn’t supposed to be
I’ve walked on red-hot coals
Sunk in scum so thick
Fallen through air too thin
I’m still here
Head held high
With a smile on my face
Still alive and walking on
Still making mistakes

I’m glad to say
That my mistakes belong to me
Exclusively, exhaustively
I’m the sole creator
Author and implementer
Right down to the dots on the t’s
To the crosses on the I’s
My mistakes are mine
To laugh at
To cry with
And learn from
