Make the jump
Take the turn
Watch the tragedies
Stand still
Don't know what to do
How to react
Grab for something
Ask for help,
Too late
Time took its toll
You waited too long
Didn't feel
Saw their pain,
Watched suffering
Now it's your fault
You could have done something
Opened your mouth
But no,
Now your life is regret
Guilt and pain
You should have done it
This is your life now
Deal with it
Take it all in
Feel their pain

I like the accusatory yet guilty feel overall of your poem, how you're angry at yet also upset with yourself and what happened. Blame is a heavy weight to bear, and usually we take it upon ourselves as a way to shield others, yet you take it on after the harm has been done and you're disappointed with yourself. Very vivid piece. Thanks!
