There are two words that are the least uttered. There are two words that are the most desired to be heard. There are two words that everyone should say more. There are two words that are the hardest to say. Yet, most people attempt to convince themselves, that it won’t matter if they speak these words. They do this so they won’t have to say these words. Lies spilled inside to hide the truth outside.

I have always prided myself in taking the high road if allowed. I have always said I admit my mistakes. I have always been a righteous man and I have always lived a code of honor. Thus, I will speak these two words to the world.

I’m sorry!

If you are reading this, then I truly am sorry. For most certainly I have wronged you in some way. It seems I am incapable of doing anything right. That is what the world has been telling me, all my life. “I am useless, and never will amount to anything.” These words came from my mother, so they must be true.

So, I am sorry if I offended you. I am sorry if I did you harm. I am sorry if I did not understand you. I am sorry if I let you down. I am sorry for any and everything I ever did. I am sorry that you wasted even a second of your life in my presence.

I won’t make any excuses or clauses to these two words. For that would only diminish their meaning.

Nor do I ask that you return those two words. That also would dimish them.

Will the two words I spoke here matter to anyone? Will they have meaning? Are they like lost memories…faded and without definition?

I cannot begin to answer those questions. I can only find solitude in the fact that, at least someone was not afraid to say those two words.
