Your Slate is not Clean

and it never will be. That’s something
people tell themselves
to feel better about the crappy things
they’ve done in life. The repeated mistakes,
the thoughtless remarks, the pillage
wreaked in another persons life. We say,
“that’s in the past, I’ve changed”.
But here’s the thing.
The slate should never be cleaned because
we need to own our mistakes. They’re what makes
us human, what makes us grow. Our chalked-marked
slates are part of us, our past make us
who we are today. So throw away that eraser.
