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.
