I am sorry for the times I tried to be somebody else
I’m sorry for the days I didn’t put you first
When I saw your exception as a sickness
And how I doubted your majestic strength
I’m sorry for shedding those tears
I’m sorry for denying your presence every now and then
Making up unwarranted excuses for your uniqueness
Mainly because you don’t fit in, you are different
I’m sorry for disregarding your priceless worth
I’m sorry for making you take so much
I shunned you when their attention I’d won
Shushed you until from a whisper, you became voiceless like the ‘k’ in knob
Looking back now, does it even make sense?
Looking back now, everything was pointless
I acknowledge my mistakes from the onset
I beseech you therefore, for your divine forgiveness
Making a solemn promise of a changed mindset
To henceforth, let you be your awesome self
Come out of hiding, your silence is deafening
Your conspicuous absence makes me completely incomplete
Will you please grant my desperate plea?
I am sorry
for almost getting lost in the pretense.
I am sorry,
