Place the Blame


We often stumble and fall
Often blaming others
Causing recovery to stall

Grasping for any lie
Instead of facing the truth
One which we strongly deny

Unable to acknowledge
Our own failures
Forced us to the edge

Wallowing in self pity
Instead of picking yourself up
Expecting to be seen as pretty

Wanting the attention anyone
To swim in sympathy
Continuing to be undone

Crippled they fail to process
Enabled by friends and alcohol
Instead of working towards success

We often stumble and fall
do not blame others
Do not blame at all

Its only your current trial
No reason to fall apart
You will not defeat with denial

We try and try again to stand
For if we never try
Happiness we can never demand.
