Learning mistakes

Help me improve too
in life
learning is
a never ending process

we all learn
from others mistakes
as life is too short
to make all mistakes
others have already made
to be convinced
such errors
can be committed
by them
as we alone
have now experienced

this poetry
is a kind of
modern edition

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Your poem is this one of your mistakes, LOL ???
Come on you know the difference between mistakes you learn from and poetry you learn from,
the former being the learning of how not to touch fire etc:
the later a continuous way of improving your words to present to the world
Over the years we have walked this pathway young Bard we have both improved our way of talking to each other in a poetic way.
The two mistakes are not compatible, with poetry you can have fun making mistakes, then there are those that are very serious about the whole thing.
Oh ! to have been trained in poetry, the teachers here would have to up their game if I had been lol
You take care and great to walk with you again,
, Yours Ian

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

I am the only fish
who is angled
by one and only one ...
named Ian

without you here
I would have been a dead fish since eons
but you come along again and again
to feed my vein

but hope this one was alas
a poetry not in vain
as I haven't understood
your strain
