Feeling guilty.

Feeling guilty
that everything
is neither right
nor wrong
because someone is hurting
and someone is happy
and there is guilt
that lives within me
larger it gains
with a thought
a thought, thought by me
a thought, thought by you
a thought, thought by them
a thought, thought by they
it is a thought
and I get ruffled
slipping through the cracks
that are opening
trying to hold on to the edge
as the guilt it grows
heavily I am
my fingers give up
falling I am
as the guilt
of right
and the guilt of wrong
it lives
it breathes
it multiplies
and I cannot breath
my airway restricts
and my brain struggles
to the tune of my heart
am I right
am I wrong
am I one of the many
burrowing us deeper
can I be better
what is better
is anything better
or is better just a thought
an opinion
if I think it
it’s right to me
and yet wrong to you
I cannot stop
this feeling
so deep
as I fall
and I fall
I struggle to regain calm
although I’ve never felt it
so if I reached it
would I know if I am?

Thanks for reading.
