Morals when you are alone

Prayers spoken
Knocking on a door
Dog's body is still moving
Bones broken
But you need to stop hoping
I didn't do it, but I am making certain
This ends now
Whether they put her out of her misery
Or care for her, it will be a burden
Upon their heart
And upon mine
I could have driven on
I could have looked away
But my heart would have known
And I don't forget that
I couldn't bear that shame
Whether others knew or not
I couldn't atone
In my darkness all alone
My heart would know
And remind me
Every time
I'd turn off the light
Close my eyes
And try to sleep
I'd remember
And then wonder
Why didn't I do
What I knew I should
