The Apology
To the future, I知 sorry for our past mistakes. I知 sorry that we have let it get out of control. I知 sorry for letting slip the values that are supposed to be held dear. I知 sorry for letting understanding and compassion fall into the cracks never to be seen from again. I知 sorry for the amber alerts, domestic disturbances and drive by shootings that dominate our media. I知 sorry for what has become. I知 sorry for seeing our world change into the negative and not having the courage to stand up to stop it. I知 sorry for being a small piece to the puzzle in a generalized messed up picture. I知 sorry for making our children grow up fast, work twice as hard to end up in roughly the same place they started. I知 sorry that torment is now finding home more often in the brain than it is in the body. I知 sorry that anguish and suffering now are symptoms that the majorities have to cope with. Struggle breeds strength, but sometimes you simply cant hold it all up and still manage to function. I知 sorry that with each generation this world looks less and less manageable, like the walls are closing in while the floors fill with water.
Within our sorrow and regret, we all knew this day would come. Protect what you can, love while it lasts and keep in search of happiness, because when it comes down to it, it痴 all that we ever truly own, our happiness.
