im sorry

I have come to realise, 
What a coward I've been. 
Overwhelmed by the hype, 
And poverty life, 
That has slowly beaten me down. 
I should have listened. 
And I never should have said those things. 
I'm sorry. 

I was flicking back, 
Through snapshots in my mind, 
Trying to find a time, 
I was happy. 
I was shocked to find, 
At the back of my mind, 
The people I left behind. 
And I'm sorry. 

I became dismissive. 
Fake smiles and frowny face looks, 
Were allies of mine. 
They replaced all of you. 
Your originality and quirks. 
I swapped late night talks, 
For cheap shoes and oodles and noodles.
Leaving the life of fame glory 
For a life of love and poverty  
And I'm sorry. 

I will not leave what I have now
but I want to add you into it.
Call this my second attempt, 
At being a better person. 
But I yearn for happiness, 
And crave affection,
 
Just like I always did. 
This is my confession, 
A chance at redemption, 
And I'm sorry. 

My hypocrisy is a talent. 
I cannot say anything, 
To justify my actions, 
And callous words. 
Blinded by petty drama, 
And fashion disasters. 
Selfish doesn't come close, 
And sorry isn't good enough.

    When the heart reveals itself in self awareness the heaven rejoices and so do the people who love you, wait and see, the true ones always stick around. I am sending you this comment to strengthen "Esprit De Corps" It takes a big woman to admit to all of this I say chin up girl, if you've been saving the best for last, now is the time to give it, love, vie
