The Guilt (Poem)

We all make mistakes. We all feel guilty about making them, some time or the other. Most of us forget about our misdeeds easily. Some of us keep on reminding ourselves of them. Here is the expression of a person whose guilty conscience  and  quality of self - criticism help him become a better person. But is he really done with his inner - battle?

Twice I apologized and was lovingly forgiven,

But inside the heart guilt is hidden.

There’s a hole in it that cannot be filled,

No matter what I do I cannot remove this guilt.

If only I could go in history,

And take back the misery.

But alas, that isn’t possible,

Regret is something which is possible.

In the mind a storm is brewing,

Reprimanding and criticizing.

I try hard to calm it down,

But the guilt often makes me frown.

Of the guilt I try hard to get rid,

But how can I, after what I did?

I accept that it will always be there,

And for the future I prepare.

Nevertheless, all of it transforms me,

Into a fairly pleasant personality.

Yet there’s a hole in the heart that cannot be filled.

No matter what I do I cannot remove this guilt.

Well, as the title suggests these are some inferences about life that I've somewhat arrived at. They may be called Aphorisms. Of course, I realize that living by these is not easy, but I just hope they influence me in a positive way. I hope you too can identify with some of them.

Talent needs courage in order to be efficient.

An idea is like a plant, it dies if it is not nurtuted.

Rationality is a gift to us but very often it is the thing that stops us from fulfilling our dreams.

The main reason behind being depressed is not being where you are destined to be.

It is courage and consistency that makes an extraordinary man different from others.

A human mind can’t do without knowing, it always wants to know more.

Guilt is nothing to be afraid of. Every guilt trip is just an indicator of your improvement. It actually encourages you to improve more.

Ego is the root of all problems. It should be minimized as much as possible.

It is only acceptance that gives you peace.

Religion is but a simplified version of spirituality, it is for the masses.

Science was observed because men wanted reason.
