I really should have done more. I didn't have the power, but I still should've done more. I sat there for years. As witness. My silence makes me complicit. I sobbed when J left. I could've done so much more and confessed to J. The person with the power didn't see it. Even when I presented it clearly. They had the power, not me. But that isn't a good enough excuse. Next time I'll do more. I did something eventually. Got the ball rolling. They got what was coming but it was too late for many. I should've done more.

    Oh dear, regret! Possibly inevitable, but oh so impossible to reconcile. An interesting, if disturbing drabble.
