I saw another writer write something about them feeling like a bad person. I wanted to write something to make people aware you are not a bad person!!!! You will mess up and it is ok! You are loved. You matter. The point is to learn from our mistakes and try to do better to become better people.

He simply labels you as loved

I think it ought to be learned
That mistakes are lessons we must be taught 
Mistakes do not corrode your character
But erode your lack of understanding
We are to learn from the past
We are to grow
Plants do not grow without rain
Therefore humans can not grow without pain
Mistakes make you human
For you are not a bad person
You are someone who is growing through life like a leaf floating down a river
Blindly following the current
Wondering what you will become
Wondering who you are
And wondering if you take the wrong turn around the bend if you will be labeled as bad
The idea of being seen as bad makes us feel quite sad
But I promise you mistakes are normal
Take your chances in life
If you mess up and someone gets hurt simply do better next time
Don't label yourself as a bad person
For mistakes can be healed, forgotten and forgiven by God
If He can forget your mistakes and forgive you
Perhaps you should as well
For He doesn't label you as a bad person
He simply labels you as loved.
