Who To Blame…


If I stand still and drink my fill

of the world that’s round about me,

would you blame me?


If I lose my way, from day to day

travel in circles that confound me

would you blame me?


If I search for life, leave my title of wife,

hiding the doubts inside me

would you blame me?


The question I ask, taking myself to task

it’s all about me, for can’t you see

I blame me…….

  1. 'Blame' leads to 'guilt', which, from my own experience, can take a great toll on one's psyche. People should let go of 'blame'; it doesn't help.

    Keep writing.

  2. That's a very inspiring and thought provoking poem - thank you for sharing it>

  3. Soooo good and thoughtful, Penelope. What a gift you have :)
