To You Mommy and Daddy
by Ashley Wainwright (at 15 years old)
Now loving and beautiful on the inside AND the outside because of one
Awesome Mom, one Awesome Dad and one Awesome Attachment Therapist!
I’m sorry for all the times I lost my temper
For the times when I was rude
For all the gifts that were given
and never received thank yous.
For all the love you’ve given me
and I haven’t given back
for all the time you were patient.
(a virtue that I lack)
I’m sorry for all the people
to who I was cruel
to all the people I laughed at.
I acted like a fool.
I’m sorry for all the times I lied
for the people I hurt along the way.
Not a day goes by that I don’t regret it
and I’d take it back any day.
The only person I cared about
was me and only me
and now I’m truly sorry
I only wish I could make you see.
I’m sorry for everything I’ve done
for all the people I let down
I’m only asking for a second chance
so I can turn things back around
I know that it’s a little late
my deeds can’t be undone.
I realize now that I was wrong
and I’m sorry everyone!
