Sometimes People Need to Make Their Own Mistakes

Sometimes people need to make their own mistakes,
To reach their goals and learn their limits,
To see if they really have when it takes

A bird won’t be able to fly, if someone’s holding on,
A plant won’t grow, if it’s forever locked in the dark,
Stuck in a barn, horses can’t run free and grow strong

I know a garden won’t grow on it’s own,
But there’s only so much a person can do,
You can’t force a plant to grow after the seed is sewn

Do what you can, but life will take it’s course,
But you can’t do everything,
You can’t make things grow with force

Sometimes people need to make their own mistakes,
To live and grow on their own,
To see if they really have what it takes,
You can’t do everything for them,
just be there to support them and see what a difference it makes
