Sorry Mom

I'm sorry Mom, I'm sorry Mom
I must apologize for I'm wrong
I'm sorry Mom, I'm sorry Mom
I need a chance to be strong

I'm sorry Mom, I'm sorry Mom
I'm sorry I got bad remarks
But I really want to play and dream
and hate anything thats routine

I'm sorry Mom, I'm sorry Mom
I'll wake up on time, I know the rule
do my homework and study hard
once I'm back from school

I'm sorry Mom, I'm sorry Mom
I'm just learning the ways
Of what is good and what is bad
and making choices in stead

I'm sorry Mom, I'm sorry Mom
I'll never disappoint you,
I'll try ever harder not to
Yeah, its true, Yeah, its true.

    He writes poems and only eleven.
    He writes poems that rhymes,
    What did I do when eleven?
    Studying hard? Sometimes.

    A wonderful read. You have the gift of words and have the advantage of youth.
    I believe you will grow up to be someone in the literary world.
    Good Luck! (Report) Reply

    Nowadays, people always think they are right and our so wrapped up in their infallibility to realize when they are wrong. It takes a lot to say you're sorry and I'm proud you can do it(: Fabulous poem

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
