"I'm sorry."

The two most damaging words in the English language. Who are you to be sorry? Sorry for me. You don't even know me. Yet. You're still. Sorry. Sorry for me. 


Why are you apologizing for my existence? Why are you making me feel more worthless than I already do? Why are you making it harder for me to look in the mirror? Why are you making me feel like a burden on society?

No. I'm sorry. 

I'm sorry for you. I'm sorry for your ignorance. I'm sorry that you can't see past my disability. Beneath my costume.

Because you might not see it, but I am a superhero. I fight invisible bad guys everyday and I look damn good doing it. 

But you don't care. You don't take the time to get to know my super strength because you saw me out of costume once. 

And you're sorry.
