Navanita Medhi

Everyday teaches us something
and they are the learnings
of our life,
What we learn from our faults
are important –
to correct ourselves,
What we learn from the faults of others
are important too –
as they tell us not to do the same,
But what we learn from the damage
made to us
by the misdeeds of others
are the unforgettable teachings –
as they adversely affect our life,
You may forgive and move on –
But whether the wrongdoers
have realised and learnt something
in the process
is even more important for us all.
