ALL THIS EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

 

all this emotional baggage

that I carry;

insecurity

fear of intimacy

 

blame the parents

why not?

 

You gotta blame

someone

so that’s the choice

 

for instilling

the lack of confidence

the lac k of esteem

the inner weakness

 

I’m still falling

& the blaming

is distracting

the catching

 

descend

into the pit

with a net

or safety cord

 

parachute

won’t open

and neither will I

Blame

When I discovered my parents were extremely sick, I quit blaming them.  You can't blame sick people for being sick.  It's not their fault they are sick.   Stephen
