You have 100 words left. What do you say?
If I had it all to do over
I'll say I would
knowing that is not an option.
what we do
with what we have
in the moment.
So many words we use to try and explain without taking responsibility:
misstep omission snafu faux pas fumble
illusion delusion misprint typo
slip oversight flaw gaffe gitch
bungle oversight lapse blunder flub
misapplication misinterpretation misjudgment
screwup stumble boo-boo
Choices can't be recalled.
Regret self-flagellation signifying nothing.
Apologies band-aides with hearts for scars that won't heal.
Forgiveness the only eraser
when you've used permanent markers
on the white board.
