guilty conscience

The moment sleep comes; I get up perspiring profusely, her cry for help ringing in my ears.

Whatever may be one’s karma, no one deserves this gruesome end.

I showed cowardice and am doomed for whole life.

I was just passing by when I witnessed the most heinous crime.

They were four men, behaving worst than an animal.

I was intimidated by their number.

I thought they will kill me if they see me, so I can’t help her anyway.

I can find excuses to console me. But the fact remains.

I could have done something to help her.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  2. Dear Indira,

    Could this person really have helped? How many people live with this kind of guilt. Well done.

    Shalom,

  3. It would take real courage to help but I suppose that feeling of guilt would always be there. It is so sad. Well written.

  4. We read in many places about people being passive spectators to such crimes. I wonder what they must be thinking.
