Being Guilty Poem by Susan T. Aparejo

Being Guilty

Rating: 4.0

Is it guilty to tell the truth?
Is it guilty if you stand for it?
The truth they said will set you free.
Yet, they force you to say,
The opposite of what it may.

Asking me if I am guilty?
For taking the penalty,
Of what the truth I say?
Whatever you call me,
I still remain as I can be,
Don't force me to live my way,
The truth will set me free,
So never I feel being guilty!

You want me to tell a lie?
And you even curse me to die?
Your friends never ever say 'Hi! '
Who cares if you deceive them in your cry
And our relation is not an apple pie,
What matter most is the truth that apply,
Even in all aspects you deny,
I am willing to say goodbye,
For the young generation's eyes.

As i read this poem, it makes me realize that there is no person could make you realize that you did something wrong or force that you did something wrong, You will just realize the guilt and someday you will learn how to accept the truth and it make you free from mistakes that made youa Andrew M.

This poem feels like it is wrestling with truth and guilt. It is surely thought provoking. If lies imprisoned me in a perfect palace, how guilty would I feel that the truth had not set me free? Sorry, this poem has got me thinking. Well written 10/10.
