Misplaced Guilt – Part Two

I am not those things you called to say
None of those words are my name
Yet here I am hiding in shame
Why?
Why have I allowed your lies to label me?
To hide behind a mask that doesn’t belong to me?
A guilt that was never assigned to me?
All because you felt the need
The need to replace your pain with misplaced guilt
So no one will demolish the wall you’ve built
But it’s okay to wreck mine
Even though I just rebuild for the seventh time
Why?
Why did you choose to use those words?
Did it not occur to you that they might hurt?
That they may be that last chip
That last chip that forces me to flip
Or sink and drown
Are you proud?
I am not those things you called to say
None of those words are my name
It is not my guilt nor my shame
But if you let me, I can help you heal your pain
