  • Understand (the Purpose to our Flaws)

    When we're combing through the thread of our lives
    it's easy to get hung up on each knot
    and live in regret recalling the times
    we did things we now wish we forgot.
    Even with hindsight, who can understand
    fate's hidden purpose for every flawed strand?
    We do our best to see clearly
    how we made each mistake
    if only so that we merely
    avoid future heartache,
    but the tighter we hold the past in our hand
    the faster it sifts through our fingers like sand.

    We can only return
    to the past in our thought
    so we hope that we've learned
    what life's lessons have taught:
    to move on and choose wisely
    the steps that we take,
    and to never take lightly
    the choices we make,
    and in the end understand
    that our lives all connect,
    and that each errant strand
    we see as a defect
    in fact forms a pattern we cannot yet see,
    and our lives as a whole form a grand tapestry.
