Aggravation is an easy thing to occur,
Even if it is never intended.
Sometimes easy to forgive,
Yet some friendships are never mended.
What really makes it hurt sometimes is
To know it is your kin.
It is easy to rile someone
If you do the things again.
I wish I knew what it was
That made me shoot my mouth off.
For if an apology is given,
I still feel as though I’m wrong.
Oh brother dear, I’m sorry.
A sister I was not.
But I do still love you.
I hope you don’t think I forgot.
