The Daily Prompt : Apology

Apologies need a lot of courage

Not all can admit their mistake,

The ego comes in between

A mistake and an apology.

Often there are different reasons

Behind every apology,

Some do not mean what they say,

Others just want a finish.

Some think saying sorry,

Means everything is fine.

But a hurt always leaves a scar,

And often an apology,

Makes no difference,

The scar always remains.

Then there are people,

Who can never accept an apology,

They prefer to remember the past.

They cannot forget or forgive.

Many a time an apology,

Makes it possible

To leave the past behind

And face a new future.

But, it depends on the person.

An apology from the heart,

Makes all the difference.

The Daily Prompt : Apology



By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
