    Puke! Puke out the guilt.
    What guilt?
    Is it your own, or that of others?
    Guilty of what? Succumbing?
    When you’ve tried to hang on countless times but got blamed for letting go?
    Because none of them stood in your shoes
    Nor took the fall when you fell out of your own, after being pushed and used?

    Did you walk a mile in others’?

    Yeah, baby, you did…

    In spades

    Grace to you.

    And yeah, sometimes you’ve had to make your own hard calls…
    But you did it out of compassion
    Where’s the compassion when you get blamed
    For a thousand healing steps taken in the right way
    Undertaken mindfully, but having fallen once hence
    You are left in the mud by the self-righteous…

    Kinda makes you feel like they’re the ones
    You’re supposed to be doing this for;
    Getting up again, evening Life’s score (as if!)
    To make their journeys justified and sanctified
    So that they can feel saved by having saved yours…

    But still, they’ve not walked a mile within your shoes…
