Blame No One

You've tried to blame the world and me
for all the hurt you've felt
You tried to say it was our fault
for cards that you were dealt
How could we be the ones who caused
the pain you hold so dear
What makes you think we are so cruel
to trap you in your fear
We've tried so hard to make you smile
to help you to forget
Those times when you have been so blue
and terribly upset
Who told you it would just be fun
this life it is no game
Why not just call a spade a spade
not some strange made up name
You're not the only one that aches
from deep within your soul
There are so many others that
have never reached their goal
So many men have come and gone
without accepting life
And chose to take the hardest way
and filled their lives with strife
So when upon each morn you wake
and wonder why you must
Remember all the joy you've skipped
and how you've often fussed
This was your choice you can't deny
you've led the life you made
You were the one who ran the tab
and now it must be paid

I can think of a few people right now that should read this poem. It describes them and their attitude to a 'T'.

i do so love your poetry it seems to come from almost another source than they guy that writes the posts... but i know this only to well there has never been anyone to blame...

Did you write this, DS? It is brilliant - not being a lover of poetry, particularly, unless it scans and rhymes, I find this really beautiful. This is the type of poem which is a pleasure to read in an anthology - not those spewed out by the likes of Ted Hughes and Andrew Motion. First class!

I know just what you mean matty.

Thank you paisley, I don't really know where it comes from wife said basically the same just comes, and when it does I share it.

Yes agnes, I wrote it and thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
