“We all make mistakes”, she said
and I couldn’t help but think that’s true
I replayed mine in my head
and wondered again what to do.
“You need to move on” was her advice
“There’s no need for again and again”
“once you have paid your price”, she said
“Beating yourself up only causes more pain”
She wasn’t talking about me, I was sure,
we were discussing some other friend
but there I was in her words
looking for forgiveness, again

The month of April is National Poetry Month and I am happy to say I wrote a couple of poems this month. This one being the last. I used to write poetry quite often and thought I was pretty good at it but I got out of the habit and found this month to be stretching an unused muscle. I’d like to say that I will now write poetry more often but I am not sure I feel like that person any more.
