About That

abstract-glass_00260393About that…I’m really sorry

I never meant to hurt your feelings

My mouth got ahead of me

I didn’t think, I didn’t imagine

any of the consequences

Now the words are out there

in the universe and I can’t take

them back, can’t throw them in

a black hole, can’t bury them

under ice, can’t burn them in fire

I messed up but I want you to know

I’m sorry for adding to the trash

and debris and ugliness that’s

out there. I took a wrong turn.

About that…I’m really sorry.

By Tory, 11th grade
