I often try to take
an honest look at myself
in times of boredom or solemnity,
And these reflections often lead
To my own personal query:
"Why can't I stay mad at anyone?"
Any offense, be it large or small.
I just can't seem to stay mad
at the perpetrator for long.
I always say "I'm sorry" first.
Perhaps that is because I don't
Care enough about my esteem.
If that's the case, I'm angry.
What a sick twist of irony that is!
It seems I can't forgive myself.
But a trusted confidant once told me
Maybe I just don't get hung up on things.
And I would love if that were true.
