Guilty Till Proven Innocent


I admit, I am guilty.

Guilty of keeping quiet

When I should have spoken.

Guilty of raising my voice

When  others remained quiet.

Guilty of allowing my feelings

To get the better of me.

Guilty of standing out

When I could have merged.

Guilty of being honest

When honesty was question-marked.


Guilty I am, your honour,

Of being true to myself.

If that makes me criminal

Then criminal, I am.

I am me and can’t be you

That is the eternal truth

And however much anyone tries

It just refuses to be altered.
