Poetess, Nikki Giovanni means that any person who is alive and experiences life on any level, will undoubtedly make mistakes. This is a necessary part of living, and should not keep one from experimenting and taking chances in life. However, what is important is that one learns from their mistakes, and are able to move forward and not keep repeating them over and over.
