To my parents who gave me everything

I love you both with every bit of my heart

And as for my attitude and actions lately

I’m sorry for that and every other part

I know it can be stressful and hard

Along with your other issues

I’m trying to fix myself, I am

But lately, things are hard for me too

Mom, I know you’re trying best you can

You try so hard each and every day

But you’ve got burdens that weigh you down

Six kids in a small house with stupid low pay

So I’m sorry for everything

Every hardship I make

I’m sorry if it’s too much

If it’s more than you can take

Dad, I know you barely get to see me

I come when I can, but it’s still not enough

I’ve been busy with friends and school

Trying to smooth out things that are rough

I’m sorry you can’t see me every day

I know you see my siblings more

I’m sorry I don’t come home very much

And if it always leaves your heart sore

To my friend, like a sister

Your happiness coming like the tide

Please know I want to be there 

Standing right by your side

I’m sorry I can’t hug you

Can’t wipe away your tears

I’m sorry I’m so far

While you wish I was near

To my best friend, I’m sorry

That’s all I can say

I know I have issues

And that I annoy you each day

I’m sorry for the jealousy

The ways that I think and such

I’m sorry for how easily I get attached

And for always caring too much

To the girl I will not name

I know we’ve had a rough past

Here is all I can think to say

To fill some of those cracks

I’m sorry for the awkward

The way I acted in those days

I’m sorry for my feelings

They always get in the way

These are my each of my sorry’s

And yes, I know there’s a lot

But I just need you to hear them

And all the pain that I’ve brought
