In every way, I am stretched across my shame. Once upon a time, I did try to change.
Carrying guilt with me everywhere I go, nothing left to say, nothing left to know. Like a tree that was struck down by lightning, I am going nowhere – and it is frightening.
All I cause is pain, I know everyone else thinks the same. Shackled in my past mistakes, a dungeon in the darkest cave. All I can do is reflect on better, brighter days.
