The Mistake

The mother ran towards the river
With her mistake in her arms
It cries as if knowing its fate
She bends down to the river and releases the mistake
She watches the mistake drowned
Through the tears in her eyes
She watches the bubbles and wonders
“Was that the mistake?”

Um, well I agree with princess87m that it is kinda all over the place. I don't really get the meaning of the poem, and I think you had some word mistakes, but other than that it really was a good poem. The picture you chose really fit well. Good job!
