A costly burden

I saw an old woman
The other day
She reminded me of
Someone I once knew
She was very bent over
Her face furrowed
And all the time
Wringing her hands
And
Beating her breast
Unable to witness
Such distress and
Do nothing
I started to approach her
And offer my help
The closer I got
The more she changed
She became younger
Straight spine
Clear face
Eyes bright
Then I realised
She was
My reflection
Unburdened
By guilt
