Better to Be

They tell me
it’s better to be safe
than sorry.
Sorry to live,
really live?
Or perhaps they mean
sorry to try,
to fall,
to learn you cannot fly
but find you don’t care at all?
Maybe they mean
sorry to learn
the truth behind the lies?
Regardless
of what they mean
I’d rather be “sorry”
and find that I’m not sorry at all.
