Gratuitous guilt

Gratuitous guilt

Self sabotage

Internal agonising


Self forgiveness

Responsibility for others

Survivors guilt

Intention intuition


They say stop being so hard on yourself

As human as the rest of us


Forced upon you


High Self ideals

Emotional punishment


Self subjugation

Self degrading


Self contempt

You should have


Unconditional love and forgiveness.

    1. History shows us man cannot change. And yet the word Hope insults. I am deeply saddened by this world. But then I have been for as long as I can remember, my earliest memory, aged 4, Ethiopian babies starving and dying on my TV screen, haunt my dreams still. I am not shocked anymore. But I am now fully heartbroken. xxx
