Sorry doesn't take away the hurt I caused.
Sorry doesn't make everything go away.
sorry doesn't tell you how bad I feel.
Sorry doesn't change what I did.
Sorry doesn't clear my conscience.
Sorry doesn't do much of anything.
Sorry is a useless word.

I messed up with my best friend and wrote this to her as an apology.

Sorry doesn't take back what you did, but it's the only thing you got that expresses your regret, just doesn't show how much. Great poem does, it's really lovely.

Kind of holds some truth to it although I slightly disagree. Great poem nonetheless, good job.
