I’m Sorry

“I’m Sorry:
by Kelly F. Barr

“I’m sorry”
He sounds so sincere
But the actions do not change.
The hurts come again and again.

“I’m sorry”
Words without meaning
When he really only thinks of self.
I wish I were a turtle
So I could hide inside my shell.

“I’m sorry”
An empty sound
As the hurts abound.
How long before
The actions prove the words sure?
