Cloud Over My Beautiful Beach

In one of my worlds, there is a simple & common english word that is not used.
You start out in that world with all your standard vocabs. After a few years, you drop this word like a hot rock.
Sorry is a sign of weakness. It is an acceptance of all guilt. Any guilt.
In that dog-eat-dog world, the weak are the hunted.
The dogs don't ever stop sniffing for blood once you utter that word.
The prize is all that matters. The sooner you get to it, the quicker you can get to the next prize. And the next. And the next.


  1. I think you have to be brave to say sorry. It shows strength of character and a high self-esteem to accept when one has been out of line and apologise.

    Thanks for following. I love your pink blog. :o))

  2. This is so true. Today the offender feels that saying sorry makes him/her 'smaller', thus he would prefer to attack than to say sorry. And the world goes on and on ...

  3. @ Kiru Taye. That bravery to do the right thing, regardless of consequences on business, is what mankind is gradually losing.

    Thanks for following. I hope you keep visiting even when I briefly switch the color to teal.

  4. Nana, sadly, it gets easier by the day to get caught-up in that character without realizing it.
