On remorse

Like those times when we walk
With head hung in shame
Do we ever wonder why
We do that?
Of course it helps us avert
Having to look into
Those unwanted eyes
But then again
If we feel remorse
Shouldn’t we face the verdict
In those eyes…
Chin up, in the face?
Or is it, that we’re just
Feigning the remorse?

    “Feigning the remorse”? Maybe yes!
    As far as facing the verdict is concerned, isn’t it easier to face it in somebody else’s eyes, thann your own?
