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. To you. 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.
