during my life
I learned to be quick on my feet
fast with a jab
not holding back
old now am I
old enough that I should
understand the difference between
real trouble and
kidding around by someone
who thought I was
their friend
yesterday I was unable to
make that distinction
I am here asking for your forgiveness

Jerry- it's much appreciated. I already forgave you anyway. Consider it as water under the bridge.

Everyone jumps to conclusions from time to time, some people being more apt to do that than others. It's just a normal part of how we all come from different backgrounds.

When I was in high school and enrolled in a keyboarding class, one of the phrases I kept on having to practice in class was: to err is human, to forgive is divine.

With that in mind, I do my best to forgive quickly. So no worries. Have a great day.

Thank you, Cerulean, I very much appreciate your quick take on this subject. I wish it had never happened, but how many people throughout the centuries have wished that and gotten nil out of it. Thanks again.
