Forgive Me kneeling guy

Something so strong,
Not the sharpest knife could spear,
Not the heaviest club could knock out,
Not the strongest python could strangle,
But with one word I detached our friendship.
Now I must ask forgiveness.

Deep as the ocean,
Meaningful as a smile,
I must ask forgiveness.
I must stitch together the wide rip,
With words so powerful,
Lions will bow down.
