Another Kind of Price

The waves both come and go, but still
The shore seems much the same

As waves of guilt surround me now
But barely touch the blame
That I assign to one like me,
Who knew where truth began:

The needless hurt that can be caused
From not much of
A man

  1. Images of the relationship between the two move with your waves. Consider too how much the topography of the beach itself affects their interaction. Where is the blame and guilt? Who bears the pain? Is it with one or the other? Or are they as wide and pervasive as the ocean itself?
