Mistakes

What is a mistake? We all make them We all wish we could take it back I once heard someone say you make mistakes because it teaches you a lesson I understand that point but what if that mistake completely tears you apart leaving you hanging by a thread what if it rips you apart and takes away your happiness what do we do we call it a lesson learned but yet we keep making them if we really learned a lesson the first time then we would never really go and make one again that's what I taught but then I realised its reality and we will keep making them probably for the rest of our lives. Now I'm 22 and I've made more mistakes in the last 2 years than I did when I was a teenager but I didn't have a chance to make them then you see I had/have a mental illness that had me in fear for a few years but now the only thing I fear is the mistakes I've made or the ones I'm going to make everyone says oh your young your going to make them but for me I feel I've made enough to last me a life time the worse thing is that people think these mistakes don't bother you when really it's all you think about everyday and it eats away at you it is hard I won't lie the laugh them off to your friends and family but you see I'm used to doing that smiling and laughing but when I'm with my own taughts it haunts me but I can't and won't let down the barrier that is barley keeping me up. You see I was out one night having a drink and a fag and laughing at something someone said when this man said your so happy laughing and smiling all the time of course if he really looked at me after he said it he would see that I really wasn't but I wouldn't let it show I hate pity I won't allow people to pity me that's just the way I am I really could write all about my mistakes but believe me it would take a lifetime and reliving some memories that I don't want to remember So here I sit thinking what happens if I keep making them what if I never learn from them will I just keep them in the dark hole inside me haunting me everyday what if I can never let them go? So the real question is what will happen if no one sets themselves free from all there mistakes what happens then.

Well that's for us to find out and decide, so I suppose this should end with this line.

To be continued.
