This is Just to Say
I’m sorry for all of the times I have lied,
All the times I have sinned,
And all of the times I have chosen not to listen

I’m sorry for all of the names I’ve called you behind your back,
All the mean tricks I’ve pulled on you,
And all of the times I’ve turned your friends against you

I’m sorry for all of the days you've wished I was gone,
All of the times I wished that about you,
But please forgive me
The truth is, I was just jealous of you


The author's comments:
This girl at my school inspired me to write this. She has no idea that this is the way I see her, but thanks to her, I realized that instead of being jealous of her, why not just be friends with her. That's what I hope people will get from this poem. You don't always have to be mean and hurtful to the people you actually wish you were friends with. If you spend all of this time not liking someone just because they have nicer things than you or stole your best frind, you may go on living through life regretting all of the hurtful things you did to that one person. So next time you see someone who makes you feel how this poem reads, go say hi and try to be friends with them.
