I Am The One To Be Blamed.

2개월 전


For proving strong while I'm weak,
for acting hopeful when all is bleak,
for moaning, when I am to creak,
for not being a freak,
I accept I am the one to be blamed.

For not having friends to surround me,
for choosing to live the life I chose,
for being "that girl who sits alone"
for making people think that I'm a crone,
I accept, I am to be blamed.

I am to be blamed,
for wearing a pseudo smile,
to mask my teary face,
for hiding in my shell,
even for confiding in myself alone.

What am I supposed to do,
when no one seems to listen to me,
when no one seems to understand me,
when I live my life, the way it seems best to me?
I am to be blamed for the assumptions too.

I've grown to accept the blames,
the criticisms, the harsh words,
I've sewn them on the hems of my garment,
till I find the one who wouldn't accuse me,
I'll continue to accept the blame.

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.

Being yourself is part of the key to the conflict expressed in the poem, which, needless to say, is similar to the myriad personalities we encounter on a daily basis. In addition, we will always find someone who accuses us for different reasons in life, those that range from envy or ignorance of the reason for something, or simply because that is their personal criteria seen from their own angle, but who do not qualify in the criterion of the other. Therefore, the idea is to protect ourselves from the onslaught of criticism by placing that mental shield on ourselves, discerning yes, but discarding the harmful As for example the "SUPPOSED".
Excellent, I loved it.


Wow! Just wow!! Impressive too.

Yes, most people blame us from their own narrow perspective while some blame us to make themselves feel good and shift the blame. As you have rightly said too, it could be from the position of envy as well. While others are blaming us for this even unrelated to us, we should learn not to blame ourselves all the time. We will make mistakes but then, live and learn then move on.

If we blame ourselves as much as we blame others .
We become the best in everything


Yes, we need to balance it out and be self critical but not to the detriment of losing our worth and feeling bad for past errors.
