I cast my mind back
and try to count all the times that I’ve said I’m sorry
It is an impossible task to be sure,
as the number is bordering on infinite
Yes, sometimes the apology is needed, the guilt earned, the blame mine
Yet, how many times have I atoned when I had done nothing at all wrong?
How many times have I repented out of habit ?
How many times have I apologized for being me?
How many times must I ask for forgiveness for simply being alive?
