Sorry

Post by FainsFamily » Thu Sep 01, 2011 10:12 am

This wasn't written with any particular situation in mind, think it's more of an observation of how we feel when we have no self-esteem. Thought maybe others would be able to relate.

Sorry

We don’t want to be a nuisance
We hide ourselves away and scream quietly
So we don’t disturb anyone.
Sorry.

We don’t want to make you feel bad
We whisper our truth into our pillow
So we don’t distress anyone
Sorry.

We don’t want to repulse you
We disinfect the disgusting details of our abuse
So we don’t cause offence
Sorry.

We are a stain on the nicely pressed order of your life.
Sorry.

I can really relate to what you have written, the words resonate deep within.
Never look down on anyone unless you are helping them up

Dear Inka1

We are sorry that you can relate so deeply to what we have written, no-one should have been made to feel like this. We hope one day that we all find the confidence to tell our stories with our heads held high.

Thank you for reading our poem and for posting. We find it helps us to be able to express our feelings through poetry, it makes us focus on what we are feeling.

Take care

All of FainsFamily

Fain,

Only just saw this, we relate a million times over. Feel that we have to apologize for our very existence, like the fact we're on this planet is at best an inconvenience for everyone we know and have met. Feel we have to be all smiles and fun so as not to upset anyone else's world, even though we're dying inside.
Slowly starting to care less about being a nuisance, and if people don't like what we have to share, well, better alone than in bad company.

You have nothing to be sorry for, Fain. You are a wonderful, kind and compassionate person. This world is a better place for having you in it.

Gentle thoughts,

Bay

Bay, like what you wrote "Slowly starting to care less about being a nuisance, and if people don't like what we have to share, well, better alone than in bad company."

We are also beginning to tell more and apologise less, it's a hard thing to change though.

Thank you for the nice things you wrote.

Take care
Fain
