Apology doesn’t bring back flesh and bone,
Or beating heart,
Or the promise that was living.
Nor does it restore faith,
So what I’m saying, is that forgiving
Would be to forget all who have been lost to your choices.
Whose voices can never be heard,
Hearts can never be won,
Hopes can never be clung to
By forgiving you,
So I will not forgive you,
Not even for a second,
For all you that have done.
This is my shame,
And for what’s to come,
We have only to blame ourselves.
