2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 3

2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 3

For today’s prompt, there are actually two options, because it’s Tuesday, which means a “Two for Tuesday” prompt. They are:
  • Write an apology poem, or…
  • Write an unapologetic poem.
Your choice. You can be sorry–or not. Or write about someone who is sorry–or not.
I'm sorry you didn't try
didn't fly to the moon and back
to reach the pinnacle stack 
of achievement
That's so far out of your grasp
due to your lack, 
of effort.

I'm sorry you didn't reach
the goals you felt beneath
your almighty presence
of being
That now wear out your feet
and break your back,
in pieces.

I'm sorry you didn't listen
like a newborn kitten
that stares with wonder
and awe
pawing at curiosity
such an atrocity,
of nine lives.

I'm sorry that your sorry
not in terms of apologies,
but in terms of never meant to be's
of a slacker
A mid-life hacker, sacker
bagging my goods,
not misunderstood...

Like you want to be.
