sorry not sorry


I apologize for no mistakes made

other than the one I suddenly created

as the word escaped my lips.

I have apologized for pain I didn’t cause

with a wounded heart

I have apologized for tears accompanied by joy

and for laughter in times when it was

most needed.

I’m sorry makes me stand three feet shorter

closer to the ground,

I’m sorry dumbs me down,

blocks my vision,

and restricts my voice.

Apologizing at the cost of peace

is just not worth it anymore-

today I reclaim

all the sorrys I ever gave

at the expense of my

soul skin.
