    I apologize for being a woman in this time and place.
    I apologize for going at a different pace.
    I apologize for thinking my wants are my needs.
    I apologize for wanting to be weak in the knees.

    I apologize for wanting to be held at night.
    I apologize for wanting a sincere, but strong man in my life.
    I apologize for wanting to be kissed juuuussst right.
    I apologize for having dreams of being a good wife.

    I'm so sorry that I want to make love and want you to stay.
    Tired of getting mine and sending you on your way.
    I'm sorry for not showing true feelings toward you.
    I'm sorry for being that B**** , it's my defense; it's what you've forced me to do.

    I apologize for wanting a man to rub my headaches away.
    I apologize for wanting to help you on your stressful days.
    I apologize for thinking about what a future would be like for us.
    I apologize for wanting someone to share my dreams and fantasies with.

    I apologize for wanting to be someones gift.
    I just apologize for wanting to be with you.
    I apologize for not wanting to be a baby mama of two.

    I'm so sorry for being a woman in this time and place.
    One day I might land in a place where my needs and wants won't need apologies.
    I'll find someone to love me: simply for being me.

    But until then, I'm sorry.


    ***Just something I thought of when a friend told me he was afraid of the "M word" when his girl wanted to committ. ***

    Feeling this perspective...
    guess we all need to be
    apologizing...because
    a lot of this is innate
    It's who we are...
    as women...

    Sister poet...you've done it again!

    Truly enjoying having your vibe back in the house this week :jumping:

    The only sorry thing here is someone ducking the M word because they are afraid of commitment. But anywho, this flowed straight to the point, poetically so. Flow on poet.

    Thanks yall...It just seems like some women are settling for less in order to have any man at all....u have to fight for the good ones and the ones that would be great partners are scared of committment....how sad. This isn't "nescessarily" about me, but I can relate.

    I get where you're comin from, and bringin it in the sarcastic viewpoint to lay your message across. Very poignant and well-stated.
