A True Sorry

Sorry is not enough
When you’ve shown a friend your battle scars
The ones you just got
While trying
To overcome the voices
In your mind

Sorry is not enough
When you know you’ve hurt someone
A person close to you
Who you never wanted
To feel the way they do
About what you’ve said or done

Sorry is not enough
When you are speechless
A rare occasion on
Which you know
You shouldn’t have
Done what you did

Sorry is never needed
In some cases

Like when you are sympathized for
By your true friends
People who understand you
And will never let you down

Like when
You are told you are loved
Despite your battle scars
Despite your problematic needs

Sorry is never needed
When you are offered protection
When you are offered compassion
When you are offered mental stability

Sorry is unheard of
As you are given a second chance
As you are presented a new home
As you are swept into a new family

cool! Is this about a particular person, or maybe yourself? I know I always ask, but I am just wondering.

Sorry, Eric, no comment can be made about who it's about.  Top secret.

No codes.  I really can't say anything more about it.  Also, don't email Marko any more; he got really annoyed.
