We all need a place to make mistakes.
We all need a chance to get it wrong.
The weight of the world can pull us down.
Guilt we feel or forget from breath to breath.
Reactions of others affect us in some way.
Internal systems function or fall apart.
Settings determine levels of impact.
Casualties yield consequences.
Survival of some seems arbitrary,
But it's never that simple.
Practicing for life wherever we can,
Trying to do something well,
We can grow beyond those difficult moments
When we have a place to make mistakes.
