Poet’s Corner

I Am Not Apologizing Anymore

I am done apologizing for who I am


It is true

That I am sorry if I make you feel uncomfortable

But I am not apologizing anymore

We have chosen different paths

What matters to you and me is not the same

I am at peace with the difference

That really is all there is to it

I completely accept your choice

But you need also to accept mine


I am afraid

You must step out of my life

Because I am done pretending

That what you value

Is more important


I will miss you

I actually love you

Despite our differences

Or maybe because of our differences

I did not seek you out because we were like minded

Rather because I appreciated what made you unique

But I too am unique

And I am not apologizing anymore
