Archive for the tag “apology”

on the art of apologizing

somebody has to be right
that’s just the way it is
though the fact of the matter remains
most times it’s impossible
to determine who exactly

either the entire world owes me
an apology (formal or informal
it matters not]
or I’ve a lot of explaining to do
to so many of you

even when I admit a wrong & apologize
I’m reminded actions are more
meaningful than words
leaving me walking away
and muttering something
that may or may not be intelligible
