hard to hear

always hard to hear is the word “sorry”
how arduous to speak it
yet so powerful that
it can even turn back time

  1. Many thanks for recommending ‘Today’s wage’ on Laughing penguins to Seekers’ dungeon weekly roundup.
    Much appreciated. Take care and keep giving us your elegant poetry. :)


  2. My personal choice is to say it sooner rather than later. It has saved many a situation for me, and rescued many a rocky relationship… Very nicely put. God bless!


  3. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this poem. If sincere, “sorry” is a powerful intention and utterance, capable of healing the deepest wounds.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
