The I Am Sorry People
I am sorry. It’s just the way I was made.
I’m sorry. It is in my genes.
I’m sorry. It is my pattern.
I’m sorry. But I warned you.
Being with the “I’m sorry people” is a challenge.
They do not want to take responsibility,
And they think a simple “I’m sorry” will fix things.
It will not.
We have a responsibility to be more vigilant.
A man who has left a wife and six children will do it again.
A woman who knows how to bake pies
knows how to make warm, hot cinnamon rolls.
A spider monkey cannot be chastised or shamed
for being a spider monkey.
It is up to us to be more vigilant and aware.
A unicorn will always be magical and pretty.
But will a magical pretty woman always keep her shine?
Holding an elephant’s foot to a mouse will not always help.
Sometimes we have to hold our own foot to the fire.
