Buried Alive

i add to the burden of living
by piling on guilt for things i cannot change
things that are out of my control
or something i can no longer change

some of the guilt is simple
like a wind up toy
i think about it too much
and it takes off
but time will run out and it
will stop moving and
i will be free
released from the weight
no longer running

but some of the weight is more
and truer
it is shoveling dirt on me
bit by bit
sometimes i think i can escape
but mostly i realize
that i am
losing the battle
i cannot climb out of the hole i have
inadvertently dug myself into
i am being buried alive
