Poet's Plea For Forgiveness

If I have hurt,
I am sorry.
If I have been wrong,
I am sorry.
If you could have written it better,
I am sorry.
If there might have been some other way
For me to express myself,
I am sorry.

For what am I sorry?
I am sorry
For offending the tender conscience.
I am sorry
For not being everything you thought I was.
I am sorry
That my poetry is not perfect.
I am sorry
That this poor medium is all I know
To use in self-expression.

For all these which you call wrongs,
I am sorry.
Please forgive me.

I only hope i can forgive with the grace and forgiveness i have been desperate and humbly grateful to receive. Thank you for your poem
Few people have the guts to ask for forgiveness. Few people have the courage to grant forgiveness.
