Family Apology

Location

 

Father, forgive me for I have sinned;

But worse than the others, I’ve sinned against him.

Father, forgive me for I have sinned;

But given the choice we both know I’d do it again.

 

Mother, I know you raised me better than this;

I still went out and did everything you hoped I could resist.

Mother, I know you raised me better than this;

Now when you look at me all you can see is a mess.

 

And I hope he means a lot to you.

 

Sister, I’m sorry you always followed my step;

Everything you learned from me is everything about you they detest.

Sister, I’m sorry you always followed my steps;

Perhaps it would be better if I had tied a millstone ‘round my neck.

 

Brother, I know you always saw me as I am;

You always knew that I’d always stray from their plans.

Brother, I know you always saw me as I am;

So you made me your scapegoat, I become a sacrificial lamb.

 

And I hope he means a lot to you.
