Sea of Guilt

January 22, 2010
I need to clear my conscience
To set my mind at ease
I'm drowning in my guilt
Yet I cannot rest in peace

It's hard to forget
If others do not forgive
It's so overwhelming
It's a hard life to live

Can't you see that I'm sorry
For all that I've done
Just forgive me
So this guilt will be gone

Because I'm sinking below
A sea of my guilt
Now harsh sand tumbles over
Like a trashy rough quilt

You know, we were reading in English the other day and I came across a quote saying that once a person feels guilt, it is impossible to ever get rid of it. ur poem is so true, and it reminded me of that

It's likes this poem is directly describing how I feel when I even think I did something wrong.

This is really good, except for one thing. Instead of saying "Yet I cannot rest in peace" I would say "and i cannot rest in peace" because "yet" is a contrasting word, and I believe that you are trying to say(correct me if I am wrong) that you cannot rest in peace because of the guilt. So it isn't anything big. The rest is really good!

I think what i was trying to say is that even though i'm drowning I can't die peacefully because i'm restless
