Mistakes

What is a mistake?
It is when we mess up, but we fix it...right
Us humans have made lots of mistakes
War, poverty, racism.
The list goes on and on, but its not too late to fix our mistakes!
Lots of people are getting inspired from people in the past and present to protect our future. People tell us “save the world” but its not our mistake to fix .
Adults are destroying mother earth, but they say “it’s not our mistakes to fix”.
We are destroying everything until the earth is just some dirt floating in space
But sometimes I sit back and wonder what is a mistake.
