No Guilt

I see the guilt

I want to welcome it

To shake hands

And ask how do you do

But all it does is sit there

Like it’s disabled

Mumbling stupid shit to itself

I walk off laughing at it

Leaving it alone in the dark

  1. I am a simple man, I see a new Jack Bennett’s poem, I hit like, I read it, I bookmark it. I read again days after. Satisfied!
    Knocking it out of the park once again, man!
    Very gratifying read! I mean it the way it sounds!
    Keep up the good work 🙂

      1. Yeah I guess you are right. If someday I could just learn to set it down and let be like you mentioned in the poem I’d be able carry something else. Something like confidence. I really like your writing style.

      2. I have no confidence man, you gotta lay it all bare, nothing you have to hide, that’s confidence i suppose. I’m glad you enjoy my style, I hope you find something within yourself be it from my stuff or someone elses


  2. The only reason I didn’t press like on this one Jack is bc I believe we have different views on guilt. O but also I prefer poetry without expletives. However your talent is clearly seen here. I view the disabled reference as it not being able to overtake you physically or mentally to cause you to embrace it. Remarkable work.

    1. Hey you know I value comments a lot more than likes, especially when they’re honest like this. I only use swear words how they should be used, every so often for maximum impact. Thank you for your words! Take care 🙂
