Kind Self

Deviate Slightly

Take the wrong turn off
fumble a presentation
making a mistake

Do you make mistakes and let them go? Are you eager to try a new adventure? poetry by Kimberly Burnham Photo by hang niu on Unsplash

The Basketball

Let it go
the basketball went out of bounds
the other team caught the ball
scored on you
so what
this moment after the turn over
is too important to hold on
the past is gone
there is only this moment
play as if you never make mistakes
every moment of every game
especially after you make an error
