I’m sorry for the judgments passed

I’m sorry for the judgments passed
For you did not deserve them

I’m sorry for not listening
When all you wanted to do was help

I’m sorry for yelling
And shrieking
And screaming at the top of my lungs
For things that weren’t your fault

I’m sorry for being selfish
For failing to recognize that you feel pain, too

I’m sorry for the days
The times
The memories we want so desperately to forget
But can’t

You’ve put up with me
You’ve endured my tantrums
My wrath
My fits of impending rage
You’ve given me far more than I deserve

But I must ask
For one
One final request

Will you forgive me?
