Life Lesson Poem

I am 13 and wrote this poem after I was thinking of what I could do to show my forgiveness other than in words. I started thinking that time doesn't really stop so you can fix your sins, but every day when the sun rises, you can come up with a way to be sorry and prove it. You can say sorry so many times and each time it could mean something else. You can be saying sorry but really think this is a waste of you time, or you could actually mean it. You have to let the other person know what kind of sorry you are saying.

Another Chance To Say Sorry

© Carly Nasch
It is a word
It has no substance
I cannot hold it
Nor can I prove its reason
Sorry is an excuse
To be sorry
Truly sorry
You have to believe in second chances
A way to mend what was broken
To mean your forgiveness
Sorry is just a word
You have to prove it by taking second chances
For the come along
Every once in a long while
