Sorry ( a “poem”)

“I’m sorry.”

“I don’t want you to be sorry.”

“But you’re in pain, dying,

Unloved, abandoned,

Penniless.”

“Yes, but you being sorry for me

Demeans me.

Help me, care for me,

Talk to me, love me,

But don’t feel sorry for me.

I don’t need your sorrow

Or your pity.

Never feel sorry for anybody,

Especially yourself.”
