Poem: Regarding Guilt

Written November 1995 when Jonathan is 16

Regarding Guilt
by Jonathan Kraft

Guilt
is such a wonderful thing.
It means that
any decent person
will know for themself
when they’ve done wrong,
and will regret.

If guilt is what
keeps us from
doing wrong,
then why should guilt
not be a friend?
In fact, we should
embrace the thought
of guilt, and know what
it feels like, so that we don’t
commit the wrongs
in the first place.

Guilt
is such a wonderful thing.
Except (perhaps especially) when it’s for the guilty.
