Public Apology

I realize now that I have wronged you all this time

I have given you no chance to be seen as you truly are

I have forced you to wear a mask your entire life

To pretend to know and understand

I have ignored every fragile attempt you have made

To give words to your own truth

To live without the weight of duty

I have betrayed you terribly

I have stolen your whole life

I’m so sorry
