    I cause people to feel grown
    They are different once I'm known
    Wars have been fought in my name
    I appear one way , but am quick to change

    Nobody wants me
    I am an orphan child
    I am known to do anything
    I am very wild

    Only when I'm old,
    Will people seek me as a friend
    They will claim to have been close always
    To late, now its the end

    They even want my child
    To keep as their own
    But he'll always remember me even when he's grown
    His name is Wisdom

    He's far from a fake
    I know cause I'm his mother
    They call me A. Mistake

    It's amazing what some see as a mistake God sees as a blessing a thing of beauty and strength and filled with power. Powerful flow. Flow on!

    ...this was poignant and moving
    cleverly written from a perspective
    that we too often don't hear...
    thus we do not see...
    what is often pushed aside and hidden

    heartwrenching but captivating piece...

    Feeling this...

    Oh, no doubt, that was moving. We stumble upon wisdom where were once mistakes. Thought provoking piece.
