Apology

I apologize

Sometimes I seem to get it wrong
And write my words in haste
And now I write this poem on down
With a kind of blood red face

So me, I now apologize
I’ve thrown this poem away
So please cast it from your mind
Forget what I did say

    not sure who you got P.O.'d, but if your heart told you to correct it...then amen for listening to gut instincts. I think people need a good old butt kicking sometimes, but if facts were skewed then that's a different song. BIg Heart of you to correct whatever it was you wrote!

    I still stand by my views that there is a lot of favouritism on this site, but on this occasion I got it wrong. If I am wrong I feel duty bound to apologise. Thank you mister Roboto for your kind comments....peter

    Love this! Especially the last stanza with it's "double" meaning! To realize one was mistaken is one thing, we all do that.............but very few seem to have a strong enough backbone to hold up an apology. So you are not just a great poet (on my favourite list) , you are a strong and wise man as well. Remember, we all make mistakes............we all say something wrong or get things the wrong way........it's human.

    I thank you so much Gry. your comments on my little poem are very inspiring. I believe that once a guy realises he is wrong then humble pie is the only way to go. I thank you for honouring both me and my poems, my friend....peter

    Hi Jerry. I got it wrong this time, and I don't mind eating humble pie. It's good for the soul....peter

    It seems you've spoken up on something and feel you've jumped the gun. Well welcome to the human race, apology's aren't fun. But character building no matter age, is never really done. What'd you say? Note: What'd you say is not a query from me, but rather me acknowledging that what you've said is forgotten. :) Peace. :)

    My dear friend your humility and honor are both amazing. Your heart never lets you down! As you always do what you think is right. Who has never ever made a mistake and how often do most people offer an apology? Stay true to yourself my friend and your path will be always blessed. A very fine write it is!!!!

    If only we could erase some of the things we have said. An apology at the very least will dull the pain and heal the heart.

    don't know what this is about, peter, but you've done a fine job in this apology poem. i think we can all relate to jumping to conclusions about things...

    Peter I have suggested to Soup that they do a survey and ask people's opinions as to how to improve the site and to get people commenting and joining in . there will always be issues if they are not prepared to listen hence the reason i will not be renewing my PMs net year. I admire your humility in removing your poem but you obviously feel strongly about contests and judging but the judges are entitled to their opinions even if people do not always agree. Hugs jan xxx
