Burn in Shame

September 29, 2012

Guilty Guilty,
I'm to blame
Guilty Guilty,
Burn in shame
The lying game, the dying game
Play no more
Drown in misery until there's nothing more
Guilty Guilty
We're all to blame
Guilty guilty
A blazing inferno covering our shame 
But in reality the most at fault,
Is I
I am the one to blame
I am guilty
Guilty Guilty

    The repetition really works to reveal how deep the word guilty is within. Sometimes we may repeat these emotions until they actually really sink in. Then it becomes habit! Don't be too guilty!! Be forgiving! To yourself! Always, Laura
