Not Apologizing

Not Apologizing

A Poem by David the writer

I've been here, I've been there
Nobody ever said life was fair
But you can still wish, right
But I know everything will be alright

I stick to my guns, I know
Even if it goes against the flow
I think I'm right, I think I'm wrong
It's the same old song

I've been down lately
Things have been tough to see
But here I am now
And I don't know how

I've taken to drinking and fighting
It's nothing too exciting
Yeah, I'm not the same
But there's no sense in shame

The world hasn't been easy
The food is expensive, the people sleazy
And there's no worse time than a Monday
I learned that all the hard way 

I'm honest like you taught me to be
And I learned America isn't so free
Destiny, or choice, life is life
And life means occasional strife

I've always been a misfit
And I'm going to say it
My dreams never came true
And it's got me blue

I never made anyone proud
I've just been dumb and loud
But I can't ever think of a thing to say
I guess I'm just that way

But this isn't an apology
That's not in my vocabulary
Because I'm not ashamed
Even if I am pained

Because I'm proud
To be noisy and loud
My dreams may not come true
But I'd die before I said sorry to you
