Imperfections are not mistakes

By
I am a sinner
I do fail
I struggle with the slightest things
I have just as many flaws as anyone else
I try
I fall
I try again
I fall even harder
I seek the truth,
I find;
I have the power.
To learn from my mistakes.
To make it positive,
To make it count.
Lifes short.
To make the best out of it.
I learn.
I succeed.
Imperfections are not mistakes.
They are beauties
I learn to love them

Wow. This is amazing. To not only craft a poem as skillful as this is admirable, but the topic of learning to accept your mistakes? I love this.
