Guılt Is Not A Natural Condıtıon

We are told we won’t get punished
if we admit we lied,
How about we get rewarded
for being honest and I will explain why.
Why should we live in fear,
when alls we have to do is be sincere.
Why should we be shamed,
and worry if we will get blamed?
These conditions are not of our
natural human condition,
they were CONDITIONED on to us
so let’s change how we ride this CRAZY bus.
Let’s teach children it’s O.K. to express how
they feel, that their feelings are valid and real.
That they won't be shamed if they make a mistake,
they are just learning for heaven's sake.
Society and certain religions make us feel ashamed,
so they can control us at their game.
Well, let’s change this Planetary Dream,
stop judging, blaming, enforcing punishment
which is the extreme.
