Apology Poem


I never meant

To do you wrong

Distant memories of the past

Made my heart beat fast

As I lost control

I didn’t mean to hurt you


I was wrong

I was feeling insecure

Shivering inside

Trying to catch your eyes

Though you were trying to hide


I didn’t mean to hurt you

I’m sorry I made you cry


My head just aches

When I think of

The things I shouldn’t have done


I didn’t mean to hurt you

But if I did

Then I’m sorry

Don’t let it stand in our way


It takes a great person to know when he's done wrong to know when to apologize. This poem was inspired by John Lennon's song "Jealous Guy". The lyrics of that song just seemed so genuine,only a legend could have written it.

Great! I think it does not matter about the origins of some work. It is only important that arose it and that we can see it just as we can read your poem. And of course, it's nice to know when to apologize. Good job!

The idea behind the poem is truly touching. It takes both courage and humility to say sorry when you are wrong, and it takes a lot of love and understanding to say sorry when you are not wrong. Loved your work.
