" Monologue of an Apology "

By Maria Cury


Look, I'm sorry.

Yes, I'm apologizing again.

No, no I actually mean it this time.

I don't know what I was thinking,

I never do.

I know what I did was wrong!

I told you, I'm sorry! What more do you want?

I can't undo what I did!

I'm not yelling! You're yelling!


You're right, I'm wrong!


I was going to my room anyway.

I'll slam the door if I want to!

I don't care if you take it away.

No! That's not fair! Not that!

A week? A whole week? No!

Fine! Fine.

But I want you to know.

I really am sorry.
