You'd Think I'd Learn

If I’ve ever criticized you, I’m sorry
If I’ve ever made a joke about you, I’m sorry
If I’ve ever judged you, I’m sorry
If I’ve ever jokingly criticized you, I’m sorry

Sometimes we repeat our mistakes many times
before we realize how hurtful our behavior can be
Sometimes we trigger someone else’s wounds
inadvertently causing them to retreat

Sometimes the accusations that hurt the most
are the ones that hold some truth
My critical Virgo instinct has been hard to retrain
and for the most part I’ve evolved

But sometimes I inadvertently regress
Oh, you’d think I’d learn
