Sorry? – A Poem

I used to spend a lot of time

apologising for myself


Did my humour offend you

Does my music annoy you

Am I in your way


I was a walking ball of sorry for

Bouncing off every comfort zone


I realised I had to change

if people didn’t like me

It wasn’t making anyone happy


So I did the right thing

and stopped apologising


The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  1. Comfort Zone was bored
    Now bounced happy

    Look out comfort zones
    Wild is alive
    Baige is fired

    Now you’re catching on. πŸ˜‰ I don’t believe in apologies. Though I don’t know when you wrote this and you are a geezer so maybe you stopped believing before me.

    • ruleofstupid says:

      I try not to believe at all. Either know, or accept not knowing. To believe is to adopt an attitude appropriate to a context that may not exist!
      Grace is better than apologies, but apologies are better than being inconsiderate.
      I am a geezer, still learning. Always still learning πŸ™‚

      • Combat Babe says:

        So what if it doesn’t exist? I believe in myself. Existence is relative. Only in our world with what we know do we know we exist. In “other” dimensions/galaxies/planets we haven’t been to and only have theories on we could be nonexistent. Aliens. Vampires. Who the fuck knows.

        I think it’s inconsiderate to apologize for something you did. You obviously meant to do it. You’re only sorry you got caught or that it was an unacceptable action to another. Apologies are selfish, the ultimate goal in them is to feel forgiven. How does that saying go, “It’s easier to ask for forgiveness than it is permission”. True story.

    Is okay! my friend, be yourself, you are all right to me,just a little naughty, many cute and thousand humor!

  4. kalabalu says:

    for I can not apologize for being me, I suppose πŸ™‚

    There is a time and place for apologies and I’ve found that those are really quite rare. I used to be the same way. Of course now I tend to go to far the other way with, “deal with it”, “suck it up”….. etc. Sometimes I should just keep my mouth shut. But then I remember if God wanted me to keep my mouth shut he wouldn’t have given me a mouth. (how’s that for lame, messed up logic?) πŸ˜‰

    • ruleofstupid says:

      At the end of the day, it gets exasperating watching people pretending to be something and then complaining that they never meet like-minded people! Duh. I prefer your philosophy πŸ™‚

  6. Yes, one should never apologize for being him/herself. Now, for knocking someone down, etc., of course, but not just for being… Love this.

  7. hey you sound Canadian!

  8. BroadBlogs says:

    I wonder if the trick is knowing when to apologize and when not to. The context you offer suggests when not to.

  9. I’m sorry that you went through that πŸ˜‰

  10. I love this. I really do. I’ve been dealing with crap from some people lately, heck from people all my life, and I’m always apologizing. That is exactly what I want to say. This is my kind of poetry.

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
