apologies sometimes are exchanged
in the form of sharing food
or smiles and a touch on the elbow
because words can be misunderstood
and perhaps pride stops us
from wanting to admit
we were wrong

    1. Most of the time, no. But sometimes, people take that as a sign that they were completely right, and it would be very hard to deal with people if you needed them to verbally say “sorry” and they refused to.

      1. Surely ‘sorry’ has to be relative. You can only apologize for the part of a person offenced. You may apologize sincerely, and yet there was a reason for offending that didn’t mean to offend, because we all have different standards. I usually always say sorry, have got into pickles with people that don’t understand my actions, and id anyone is offended I say sorry, but apparently, as I’ve learned, others do not, and I don’t understand that. There are people that are above forgiveness or forgiving. They must have a lot of friends.
