The guilt, it etches
deep into the soul
why is it that I
want what I
can't have

The shame, it harrows
your psychological well being
what is it
that makes it so

I am on my knees in
the garden of my Eden
wondering where
I've gone wrong

Really I am
on my knees in repentance
wallowing in a burnt down love
of human reasoning
and that's where it ends

In this trip of guilt
society is not one
will not reach
its full potential
will perish.
