I do not come here to beg your forgiveness. I have no need for it. Neither have I come here with lips shriveled with remorse or guilt or self-reproach. And if still, you bear a grudge from our past, I offer to you my deepest nonchalance.
Olubanjo, our contentions have crushed my bones and my blood is no longer stiff with resentment towards you, it is now pulp beneath my skin. It is almost as if you enjoy seeing me this way.
And so I do not come here to beg your forgiveness, I can no longer use it.
