Precious Scars

Preeti Brahmin posted under Poetry on 2023-08-06

Let me my errors own- Though I fail in your eyes I may have passed in mine- What for you is shameful Polishes me to shine. Let me my errors own- They carve all my footholds Though often might I fall- Tis but the ground I touch And rising , I stand tall. Let me my errors own- A thorny prick in time Could forewarn of barbed snares- Like a foolish sparrow May share my wintry cares. Let me my errors own- And groom  to be pillars  That will my truth uphold- Life’s breath swells my spirit And welds the cracks with gold.     Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
