Stop saying sorry

by Beau Green 3 months ago in social commentary
Report Story

But I can’t

I keep saying sorry

At times when I don’t need to

There’s nothing to be sorry about

There’s no need for a pointless apology

Spewing out words with no meaning

But I feel like I need to say it

All the time

Because what if I offended them,

What if I said something wrong

They’re uncomfortably quite

They didn’t respond in a millisecond

So I must have said something wrong

So I should say sorry just in case

It’s the only reasonable option

Even if I don’t need to

Just to be safe

It’s better to be safe than sorry
