Guilt

Guilt is a feeling of regret
Of shame, of immorality
Constantly niggling at the back of your mind
Not allowing you to leave the past behind
Guilt is an experience
Both within and outside of us
One of hurt and words unsaid
One of dwellings on what-could-have-been instead
Guilty is many things
But more often than not it is misplaced
We fall victim to ourselves
Feeling accountable or unworthy
Guilty of actions we haven’t directly done
Consequences of which we’ve contributed to none
Stop apologising for who you are, for how you look or what you believe in
Stop allowing people to define you or the framework you live in
The guilt we feel is not always rightfully ours
But our individuality is
Don’t let anyone take that away from you.
