A Poem: 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.

I release my anger, fear, guilt
Resentment, shame, and tension.
After all that I have been through,
They deserve to be mentioned.

I let go of the pain,
Mental and spiritual
It can weigh me down
Til there is no more physical

I forgive all of the perceived wrongs
Done to me,
I have to let them go and set myself free

Because I am going to be
The best that I can be
With or without an apology.
