Guilt

So few people go throughout life without guilt

So many of us feel the self rebuke

Of tussling with issues that leaves us like this

But with guilt comes forgiveness

And sometimes forgiving ourselves is the hardest bit

But understand there is always some relief

In knowing that while you exist

You can always make ammends

And God they say is all forgiving

Only the church and religions

Will tell you that guilt is for life

And that just isn’t right

You can make a mends and do good deeds

To heal any hurt or pain that you caused

But you have to repent all

And focus on doing right

Not just for a short time

But throughout your life

But we are all flawed

And so we will fail to equal

Our own high standards

Our own expectations

But realistically who will go throughout life without making

Ourselves feel in someway we have let ourselves down

And feel some kind of guilt

And those who do real bad and atrocious things

They will never be free of this until their judgement

In front of their God the highest power of all

But the rest of us can still still hold our heads up and walk tall.

  1. I really appreciate the message in this because it’s a good reminder that we don’t have to be defined by our mistakes, our pasts, our failures, etc. We can always make a new beginning and do things right. Really awesome words, Faux! πŸ™‚
