Sorry

I’m sorry I’m mean
I’m sorry I’m rude
I’m sorry I’m me
I’m sorry you’re you
I’m sorry you can’t see
Beyond my past
For those are the things
That will never last

I’m sorry I’m annoying
I’m sorry you take offense
I’m sorry for all my faults
I’m not sorry for who I am
I’m sorry you never see
That I’m not just all that
I’m much more than
One trick, one bunny, one hat

I’m sorry I’m not good enough
I’m sorry I’m not perfection
I’m sorry I’ll never be her
I’m sorry you can’t see more
I’m sorry you only see
The darkness in the light
I’m sorry a thousand times
For putting up a fight

But I’ll never be perfection
Although I shall try
I’ll never be who you want
Try as I might
So for one last afterthought
Once I leave forever
Just one last I’m sorry
For everything I’m never

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

Alex Rushmer: Honestly, poetry is not really my thing, and I don't have a lot of feedback that I can give. However, I thought that this was written powerfully in a way that affects the reader. Just don't mistake depressing for being the same as deep. You can have one without the other. This is only my opinion,...

Pamela40: This author has hit the nail on the coffin.. Their words just speak to you in so many ways on the various relationships we encounter as we journey through life. I would love to read more even a book of their poetry. This is a modern spin on Maya Angelou's boldness when she expressed herself. Ju...

Soaring_Soul: I'll do the same thing I did with your haikus for your poems and list them by chapter.I Am More - That was so deep and beautiful. You really brought out strong emotions in this piece, it made me smile while almost wanting to cry!A Part of Me - Very emotional, you can easily see the feeling in the...

WaywardKnight3: I liked this poem overall. It brought up a lot of thoughts to me about our place in the world and the place of the things around us. Plus I am proud to be of Scando lineage and perhaps that has a part to play in my enjoyment. Either way good work.

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...
