|Dawn your words are so true for some people, if he only understood that taking responsibility of one's own actions, words included, will guide him to a freedom beyond his imagination. Thank you for putting these words so eloquently. Warmth and Love, Carin'|

|Getting past pride can be a difficult emotion and yet it is so easy to let pride go...
Your poem shows your ability to write those emotions from the other side...nice work Dawn...

|Wonderfully crystalised thought process here, Dawn. The ache on both sides palpable. And how is it, even if those strangulated words DO manage to escape, it sounds sometimes as if it is the supremest effort of self-sacrifice or self-pity, making you feel even worse for provoking it??!! :)) Sometimes the agony just isn't worth it. Such power in three little words... always three... one way or the other! TY Kate xx|

|It is often hard to admit that we are human and make mistakes, whether small ones like forgettting to close a door or major ones like forgetting an anniversary. Loving though means learning and if we learn from the mistakes then love is growing.

|Dawn, this is another of your poems to add to my collection
of wonderful poems. Beautifully written. Especially that
You might remember that great scene in A Thousand Clouds where
Jason Robards is standing on a corner repeating over and over
the litany, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, etc. Then he says to Barbara
Harris, something like, "You'd be surprised how many passersby
forgave me." Sort of takes the meaning our of "I'm sorry."

Two tiny words that are so hard for so many of us to ever utter.

|The choices we make sculpt who we become - maybe tomorrow his pride will stand aside allowing his humility to take center stage?|

|Over the years the words "I'm sorry" has actually lost its meaning because of the news media's constant endeavors to make people say those words . . . A man or woman can commit a heinous crime and if they say they are sorry it seems he has suddenly become a much nicer fellow . . . On a persona level the same applies to some extent . . . People do bad things to their so0called loved ones knowing that the two words will give them a chance to do it again and again . . . Of course the fellow in this excellent poem doesn't even have the wherewithal to utter them . . .|

For some, those words are very hard to say. So many breakups and so many friends lost for the sake of pride and stubborness. That picture is a perfect example of on being high and dry. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.
