Sorrylittle Poem

Poem by Jayl Morris

I'm sorry for the pain I've given
sorry for this world we live in
sorry to be a desperate man
sorry I couldn't take your hand
sorry to to say I live in sin
sorry to see you cry again
sorry I killed the butterfly
sorry I ever thought to lie
sorry for any past mistakes
sorry I didn't have what it takes
sorry I had so little money
sorry to mix your rum with honey
sorry that love has let us down
sorry I seldom came around
sorry for now
sorry for then
sorry I'm feelin'
sorry again
sorry life
sorry love
sorry I'm thinkin' what I'm
sorry of
sorry for this
sorry for that
sorry I gave away those
sorry little cats
sorry I did
sorry I didn't
sorry I tried
sorry I couldn't
sorry to be
sorry to've been
sorry to say
I'm sorry again.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The harder I try to obtain love from others, the more I say I'm sorry.
to the point where they have told me to stop saying 'your sorry' so much. So, sorry I did. Sorry is just a four-letter word with an extra R. What will you do about what you R sorry for?
