The Apology

IMG_4993

I’ve been a shitty friend to a lot of you

And while I had my reasons

I never had excuses

I wish I’d been a better friend to most of you

Or with some

maybe just not known you at all

That would have made life so much easier

and most likely better

at least for you

Because whatever puny light my time in your life brought

it would have been better if I’d left you in the dark

Until somebody with a torch showed up

and lit your path the way you deserved

  2. Sometimes keeping our own flame from burning out is all we can do. Here’s to torches burning bright going forward. 🙂
