Family I'm Sorry Poems

Poems about Saying I'm Sorry

When you live in close proximity with other human beings there will be many times that you will offend each other. Families inevitably hurt each other from time to time. Saying "I'm sorry" are the two words that can repair your relationship. Without apologies the bad feelings are allowed to grow until eventually they grow into something so big and ugly that it is almost impossible to repair. It is difficult to humble ourselves and admit that that we may have made a mistake. However, when you think about the repercussions of not making a simple apology, you will realize that it's worth the effort.

    From internal bleeding, your eyes turned red,
    As red as the handprint you wanted to leave on my cheek.

    Feeling tense, it's so hard to breathe, as every night I cry so desperately,
