I apologise
For speaking truth
I apologise
For giving proof
I apologise

I deep regret
I showed my hand
I deep regret
I understand
I deep regret

Forgive me now
For being right
Forgive me now
For I can’t quite
Forgive me now

    [ Smiles ] This is another great poem!

  2. Love the repetition. Makes me think about how often we have to apologize for speaking our mind.

  3. This poem should be tattooed on my forehead, would save me time. Great job expressing the frustration and how futile our path can feel at times

  4. Repetition always carries a strength Helen, you have used it very well.

  5. I can so imagine situations and conversations to precede this. 🙂

  6. haven’t we all been there – good write Helen. 🙂

    Ahhh… being “right” is not always what it’s cracked up to be….

    Sometimes even when you are right, you are wrong…
