An apology, such sorrow it contains,
the regret of a mistake and the embarrassment that comes with it
and the shame of it all that hurts the ego…
But it shows how selfless and sincere people can be
they took the time to open their eyes and see
the pain or inconvenience they caused another
they’ll do anything they can to prevent growing further
apart from the ones they hurt
and are grateful when their mistakes are buried in the dirt.
Yes, some apologies are late, but better than never.
They are just a part of growing together.
