That is not who I am?

 
This is not who I am,
But I did it.
As surely as if I tied those arms,
or poured the water.
 
That is not who I am,
but while I stood around,
children were raped in front of me,
and people were ground down into concrete.
 
And I said nothing while they did it.
I looked in guilty perversion,
And I defended the perverts
when I should have condemned them.
 
That is not who I am.
Or is it?
