Apologies Stated Have Become Over-Rated


Someone has to begin to learn,
To end the re-opening of repeated wounds.
Someone has to make it known,
The stopping of this has begun to begin...
With an ending to happen and real soon.

Apologies stated have become over-rated.
People know the doing of their misdeeds,
When done.
People know exactly what it is they do.
And make a choice to do it.
To then expect a forgiveness given,
To repeat again with a doing they choose.

Someone has to begin to learn,
To end the re-opening of repeated wounds.
Someone has to make it known,
The stopping of this has begun to begin...
With an ending to happen and real soon.

Too many accept being pushed against a wall.
To become numbed by a mental and physical abuse.

Too many perceive a love is received,
And they refuse to believe they are victims.

Someone has to begin to learn,
To end the re-opening of repeated wounds.
Someone has to make it known,
The stopping of this has begun to begin...
With an ending to happen and real soon.

Too many wait too late until they explode.
To later explain how they've been made crazed.

Too many sit praying for a change.
Thinking someone wont find them,
A comfortable target that remains the same.

Apologies stated have become over-rated.
People know the doing of their misdeeds,
When done.
People know exactly what it is they do.
And make a choice to do it.
To then expect a forgiveness given,
To repeat again with a doing they choose.

Someone has to begin to learn,
To end the re-opening of repeated wounds.
Before and not after a shoving done escalates,
And a hatred escapes to stop a heart from beating.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
