Blame Yourself


You blame yourself

for how I am

For my tears

For my fears

You blame yourself

Notice something?

It says “my”

Not “you”

It has nothing to do with you

My fear of life

My fear of living

My sadness on Earth

My ocean of tears

Crashing against the shores of my fears

My hatred of myself

Has nothing

to do

With you

But yet

you blame yourself

For something

you cannot control

You cannot control


My fears

My tears

My sobs

My broken hearts

My pulling at my skin

trying to break the chains

that hold me to this cruel world

You blame yourself
