Expressions of sorrow are often fake.
“I’M SORRY”


When people say “I’m sorry”,
What, in fact, do they mean?
Depends on if they so feel
Or speak like a machine.

Uttered in pure honesty,
These words can do wonders.
They can wipe unfaithfulness
And cover up blunders.

Coming from the heart, these words
Have the effect of balm.
On an angry person they
Can bestow real calm.

When the person spoken to
Knows these are just a sham,
To the words and their owner,
He does not give a damn.
