My Apologies (A Collaboration)


This is another collaboration with my very talented bestie Manessah B. of the blog: Couch Talks, Wisdom & A Cup of Joe.
Thanks for pushing me to write this 😛

MY APOLOGIES (A Collaboration)

Sorry
I don’t
believe in disloyalty.
Won’t turn my back on friends who’ve been loyal
to me.

And I
regret
I’m no fan of pretending —
Acting like I care for people I’m not
liking.

Forgive
my sin
of keeping promises made.
When I give my word, that’s a debt that will
be paid.

Repent
I will
For my consistent actions
and giving you love you never have to
question.

Sorry
you feel
that my thoughts are too intense
and the truths I try to explain are just
nonsense.

I guess
I’m wrong
To build a fence ‘round my dreams
because you never miss a chance to rip
their seams.

Yes I’m
sorry
for the distance I create
when I see you don’t really care about
my state.

Please show
mercy.
I don’t see feelings as toys.
People are not Legos I build up and
destroy.

Oh friend,
forgive
my trying to see the best
in situations that appear to be
a mess.

Sorry
that you
never gave yourself a chance
to know me better. Instead, you judged at
first glance.

I don’t
believe
in tossing people to curbs
when I get what I want and their purpose
is served.

So, please,
accept
my sincerest apologies…

For being a human that possesses a heart.


Manessah B. – Zeina A.G.

      2. Thank you!! Manessah always gives me the motivation I need when I’m hesitating to write stuff that scare me.
        Small example…I proposed the idea of the short story “I’m Still Here” to her in October and she thought I should totally write it….Look how far it has come! ♥
        So blessed to have her support & the support of this positive community. xoxoxo Great friends always push you in the right direction.

        Well, they say when to minds connect – the third mind unleashes the emotions and truth that reflect on the world around us.
