To the future children of this world, I'm sorry.
I'm sorry that life is so tough.
And that not everyone is going to like you no matter how spectacular you truly are.

I'm sorry, this world is filled with hate and prejudice.
That everyday innocent people are killed either by themselves or others.
That because you're different you might have to run just a little harder than everyone else.

I'm sorry for the fact that true friends are so hard to come by.
And that one day they will still hurt you.
What sets people apart is whether they're worth hurting for or not.

I'm sorry that one night (or many a night) you will end up lying in the darkness crying all alone.
And that you might never know the reason why.

And I'm sorry that you're not given a choice to be born and the only thing you can do is make the best of it.
That sometimes hard work just won't cut it.

I'm sorry that sometimes you might be alone in a place you never wished to be in; with not a soul in the world to watch over you.
That, sometimes, no matter how hard you scream you might not always get what you need.

Sorry, that it can be so hard to put on a brave face when it seems the whole world is the same shade of gray.
You'll just have to bear being the only color.
And I'm sorry that people will lie to you and break your heart over and over and over again.

I'm sorry that one day you might just be so sad that you wish you just didn't exist,
And no one can really help you besides yourself.

I'm terribly sorry that everyone meets a person that can say a single word and completely shatter your world.
I'm sorry that person just might be you.

To the dear, precious future children, I'm sorry that you can only endure and hold on to the memories, near and dear. And I'm sorry that it's so hard to live.

I'm sorry.
I wish someone had told me all this before I set out into the world by myself.

Thanks for liking it. There is a lot of truth in it, you're right. I'm kind of tired of people sugar coating things and saying, it's going to be okay when it might not be. Just a brief trip to reality that's all. X)

Wouldn't it be wonderful if instead of saying sorry, we could instead look down and say, you're welcome?

Really nice piece, I liked it.

(By the way, the "I" on the 12th line should probable be an "I'm" or "I am".)

I guess that would be pretty amazing but these apologies have been put off for pretty long time. I just wanted to put them down is all.

Thanks and sort about the typo. I'll fix it as soon as I can. :)

:iconuuwahplz: I can't express how much you've made me want to believe that there's still darkness and light out there, but all I can say that it brought tears to my eyes because of the truth of all this. I adore this piece! :iconluvluvplz: You say 'I'm Sorry', but I'm here to say 'Thank you so much' for giving me something to read and to remember when I'm alone at 'night'. I really mean it. Thank you.
