I’m Sorry

“I’m sorry”
She states it
In crisp letters
On late bills
And in worried words
A constant reminder to her
That she is
Not good enough
Or worthy
She thinks that
At least
To others
Hearing the constant word
Is kind of like
An excuse
A sign of lack of confidence
Since they hear it
They are
Deaf to it now
Silent to its spoken meaning
Only hearing another word
One as common
And useful
As “red”
When she is sorry
She says
“I apologize”
A flash of scarlet
Compared to the
Common red sorry
When she says it
That’s how you know
She means it
