Sorry ~NaPoWriMo Day 24

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?
