I wish I could tell you I'm sorry,
even though I know you probably wouldn't listen.
I am still angry with you, but
I'm sure we could work things out if we tried.
It can't be that hard to make everything better again.
After all, I hate holding a grudge against you, and I'm sure
it wasn't worth it, whatever it was.
I can't even remember what we were fighting for.
I don't know who really started everything;
you had your part in the fight, and so did I.
Why can't we just work things out?
If we both just say we’re sorry and admit what we did wrong,
we can just go back to the way it's supposed to be.

A new assignment for my Lit class. A palindrome poem, of sorts.
