Sorry – Muneera Pilgrim

Sorry – Muneera Pilgrim

“I thought sorry would be enough to end wars, to dry tears, reincarnate the dead
Lazarus is with us
I thought it would unwidow the widow, unorphan the orphan
I thought it would unite nations and tribes
Your sorry was meant to pull that thorn out of my side
I guess I thought the whole world would celebrate because you said this one word
sorry
So now I’m sorry, coz I thought that sorry would be enough”
