I’m sorry.
I’m sorry.
I never knew.
I should have done more.
It’s not right.
I’m sorry.
You’re right.
I’m wrong.
I’m complicit.
I’ll do more.
I believe you.
I am the problem.
I’m sorry.

Said the man
Who would rather
feel guilty
than do what’s necessary
to make a wrong
right.

You must be complicit
It’s your fault
If you don’t see it you’re blind
If you don’t agree you’re not human
If you don’t agree you’re garbage
If you don’t see it, I hate you
If you don’t see it, I will force you
to see it
until your eyes bleed.

Said the man
with the long fingers
and cold heart
cowardly heart
long fingers
are good for pointing
and good for
directing attention
away from the terrified
8 year old
who’s been ignored
and treated badly

And now, tragically
and perfectly
it must happen like this.

It must happen until we learn
to look at ourselves
Before we apoloigize
and never apologize
before having warmed our
heart to our own weakness
and own insignificance.
