Guilt still lingers.
Trying to make up for it.
Apology hopefully accepted.
Yet, did I really make a mistake?
Or is my guilt really true?
I know I said something that angered them.
But isn’t that their problem?
Maybe decades of being guilted
are still making their presence felt.
Which means, I’ll apologize
but it is up to them to realize
I am no longer a pawn.
