Be inspired by these apology poems to say I am sorry. In life, we sometimes say things without thinking and we end up hurting the people we care the most for. Or we do something that we later regret. Show your remorse by saying I am sorry, ask the person for
their forgiveness. When we apologize we are also making a promise that we will not do this again. We are taking responsibility for what we have done, and acknowledging the wrong.
The worst thing you can do is nothing. Admit when you are wrong when you have made a mistake. And do it quickly. Don't let hurt or anger go on for a long time as the longer it goes on the harder it is for both sides.
And don't let your pride get in your way. We sometimes can be stubborn or we look to others for blame before we really accept what we have done. Step back and look at the situation, ask yourself what would you do, how would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot!
Relationships in life are perhaps the most important aspect of our lives. Money, things, possessions none of them bring true happiness, but relationships are critical. Don't lose relationships that are important to you by not apologizing when you should. And, even at times when you think you were not in the wrong, by apologizing you then can discuss the situation. But if you point the finger, if you say it is not my fault, that resolves nothing.
Never think words do not matter. What we say and sometimes more importantly how we say it can improve a situation or it can destroy a situation. Perhaps you have said something that was misunderstood - say you are sorry and explain what you truly meant.
In life one of the most important things you can learn is to say, "I am sorry". Offer your apology and show remorse - it is one of life's most important lessons!
There are times when, at the moment, we don't think we have done wrong. But once we reflect on the situation we can see that perhaps our words or actions were inappropriate. Say, you are sorry with
this short poem.
Looking back I now see
How unkind I could be
Please accept this apology
I know it has not been easy.
I'm sorry for the things I said
The words I said, now I dread
Please forgive me, this I ask
I know it is truly a task.
In the future, I promise to be
More understanding, not so contrary
If words could express how I feel
You would know I'm sorry is so real.
Let your apology come from the heart. People can sense a sincere apology and
a phony one. If you are just saying it for the sake of saying it then you might as well not say it!
And, always ask for forgiveness, but don't expect it right away.
Never do I want to take you for granted
It can make one feel like they are stranded
I am sorry I made you feel that way
Words just can't seem to say
How very sorry that I am
Please forgive me if you can!
What is an apology? What does it stand for? Let this short poem give you some answers.
A is for "accepting" I was wrong
P is for "pleading" for your forgiveness
O is for "omission" of your feelings
L is for "losing" my pride and saying I'm sorry
O is for "ownership" of my mistakes
G is for "gracious", asking for your grace
Y is for "yielding" my errors and my ways.
We can't change our actions we did in the past, we can't take back words we
already said, but, we have complete control over the future. So
apologize by admitting what you did and say you're sorry.
I sometimes do some stupid things
I don't stop and think of what it will bring
I blurt out words that I soon regret
Or take action that can upset.
If only I could change what I did
But I know that can't be done, I will not kid
A mistake, I admit, I did make
And now here I lay wide awake
I regret what I did, if I could change it I would
Please let me make it up and do some good
A truly sincere apology I offer to you
I know I hurt you and made you blue.
I am sorry, I never meant to hurt you
You are so encouraging and supportive
Please accept my apology
Even though it may not be easy.
Why do we do the things we do. Sometimes we question the why. Sometimes in the heat of the moment, we say things we should not say. We feel bad for causing sadness and hurt. We truly feel like a smuck! Let this short apology poem be one that you share when you find yourself questioning "oh why"!
Oh, why did I make you mad?
Oh, why did I make you sad?
Oh, why did I make you cry?
I ask myself why, why!
I was to focus on me
Without thinking about how you would be
It was so selfish I now see
Oh, why - what was I thinking how could I be.
There is no good excuse, there is no blame
It was my fault I say so with shame
For my mistakes, I feel like I'm stuck.
Oh why - sometimes I am such a big smuck!
The remorse I do feel for what I have done
Regret I do have - the feeling is no fun
Acknowledgment of my wrong-doing
Oh, why - what was I thinking!
The choices we make determine the day
Oh why - my choices were wrong in every way
I hope you will forgive me, that is what I pray
I am sorry for the hurt and for ruining your day.
There are special people in our life, that we would never want to hurt. Yet, sometimes, without even realize we say the wrong words or do the wrong thing - let this poem express your feelings when that happens.
Think me not unkind and rude
That I walk alone in grove and glen;
I go to the god of the wood
To fetch his word to men.
Tax not my sloth that I
Fold my arms beside the brook;
Each cloud that floated in the sky
Writes a letter in my book.
Chide me not, laborious band.
For the idle flowers I brought;
Every aster in my hand
Goes home loaded with a thought.
There was never a mystery
But is figured in the flowers.
Was never secret history
But birds tell it in the bowers.
One harvest from thy field
Homeward brought the oxen strong;
A second crop thine acres yield,
Which I gather in a song.
One last thought, that needs emphasis on saying an apology, say it, and then stop. Never say I am sorry and then go on
to give an excuse or a reason. That is a sure sign that you really don't mean the apology you are saying.
And, you will find an argument that may be brewing that will take away any
meaning from the apology. Life is too short to say mad or upset, say I am sorry!
