we let it consume us
allow it to dictate our paths
linger in that place in our minds
far longer than what is required of us
brewing in our own unhappiness

the rest not knowing what you face
safe guarding the feelings of others
taking it upon yourself
we all have a course in this life
being held back by actionless guilt
keeps you in your own way
far from joy and far from happiness
