For Mom and Dad

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 4
For today’s prompt, write an apologetic poem. Maybe the poem itself is a first person apology. Or it could be about someone apologizing to someone else. Or maybe you decide to flip the script and write a “no apologies” poem.

Mom and Dad, I apologize
for strife and tears that I caused you.
For love not often vocalized,
Mom and Dad, I apologize.
You instilled need to sympathize
with all people as is their due.
Mom and Dad, I apologize
for strife and tears that I caused you.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
