Guilt

Recommended Posts

Guilt

Like cold water going down my throat

I sensed a feeling of guilt

Whoever could have guessed that mistakes lead to pain

The pain of others, and sorrow in myself

I never knew that what I had done

Could lead to so much pain

The warmth left me

As I tried to forget

I tried to change myself

But the haunting thoughts came back

It's horrible to feel the pain of others

When stupidity could have been so easily avoided

What I feel now is missing

Because I am not myself

I tried to change

But people hated my old self

Because of what I had done

By my own hand

I slowly fade away with happy memories

And stay in the bad ones

How could I have been so stupid?

I should have learned before what I had done

A part of me is missing

And guilt has replaced

Should I say sorry?

To the people I hurt?

Would they believe me?

Or would they care?

Could they forgive me?

Or will they forget me?

Everyone deserves another shot

Only if they mean it in their heart

Forgiveness can make people feel better

Hate and painful memories tear you apart

A chance of redemption

Can boost a new start

You´re right... I should have asked about your writing. Never mind. I like the meaning of your poem, it shows you care about other´s feelings. Do you have some other?

Perhaps Edna felt your lyrics felt like they were Led Zep inspired, or they reminded her of a Led Zep song.

I'm curious as to the inspiration of the poem/song. The subject in question must have done something that hurt alot of people at once, or really disappointed them. Dealing with feelings of letting people down is difficult - writing about them helps put it into perspective.

Your writing is good and you can feel the enormous guilt about the bad they have done.

Yes, the thing that I had done hurt alot of people and me, and I regret it.

Apologising sincerely to the people you hurt may not always cause them to forgive you, but it aids in your concience being eased. Whether people choose to forgive others or not is up to them. Often we can forgive but not forget. It is often better to turn your back on a situation where you have asked for forgiveness, and start afresh with a clear concience.
