Apology From Pathetic - Poem by Korinn Theriault
It has come to my realization that I am pathetic, worthless, stupid, and useless. I thought I was helpful and kind but I now know how you feel, so I have written an apology to everyone.
For my teachers: I am sorry if it seems like I was not interested in your class. I enjoy everything you have taught me. I may seem to be ignoring you or zoning out, but my mind has been clouded with thoughts of my miserable life. I'm sorry I don't turn in my homework on time. I understand if you hate me as much as I hate myself. If you had known my situation you may have been able to understand what was going on.
To my friends: I'm sorry I've never been there for you. My absence does make it hard for me to see you all. I'm sorry my parents never allowed me to visit and I wish I could have seen you more. I understand your frustration with me always being sick. I don't deserve to have you all as friends. I never did. I'm sorry I turned into a quiet and pessimistic person.
To my parents: I'm sorry I was not the perfect child. The names you have called me are true. I deserved being separated from the world and never learning how to properly socialize. I wish I wasn't born from the man you hate so much, my dad, but I can't choose who created me. I'm sorry for being such a failure, but I do thank you for teaching me many things. Thank you for teaching me how worthless I am and for showing me that no one cares about me. Thank you for taking away my innocent happy mind set and corrupting me to be like you. If it weren't for your efforts, I would have never understood the outside world.
