Freedom from Apology

Freedom from Apology

 

I am going to be the best,

That I can be,

With or without an apology.

 

I am worthy and deserve respect,

There is no one who can deny that fact.

Who I am and who I become is my responsibility,

I am the Captain in the driver’s seat.

 

I release my anger, fear, and guilt,

Resentment, shame, and tension.

After all that I have been through,

They deserve to be mentioned.

 

Yet, I cannot sit here and deny,

All the pain I had inside.

Today, I choose to let go of the pain,

Mentally and spiritually drained,

I allowed the pain to weigh me down,

I gave you my power and was left with a frown.

 

I was blinded by the anger and bitterness,

I could not see the purpose in all of it

It was more than just an apology to me.

See, I wanted you to know that you hurt me.

 

I, now, know I have a divine right

To enjoy my life with all my might.

 

So, I forgive all the perceived wrongs

Done to me,

I must let them go and set myself free,

Because I am going to be,

The best that I can be,

With or without your apology.
