Fortunate Mistakes

June 8, 2019

PROMPT: Freedom to Fail


GROUP: True Stories

Penicillin -
was a mistake.
Super glue -
was a mistake.
The microwave - 
was a mistake.
Artificial sweetener -
was a mistake. 
Potato chips - 
were a mistake. 

Failure -
Or what we see as failure - 
doesn't mean we can't rebuild.
 It makes us test our faith,
challenge our knowledge,
and it tests our paitence 
but it makes us stronger. 

Misfortunes are not mistakes,
rather unlikely chances
to show who we really are.

    I love the way you formatted the lines, but grammatically, an m-dash doesn't really make sense where you put it. If that was intended, no problem; but if not, maybe consider taking them out? The line break should still give readers the pause you're looking for.

    Great work!
