Who to Blame?

The challenge at d’Verse Poets today is to write a poem about blame and/or forgiveness.

Who do I blame
for fifty years of living
leaving me jaded,
wondering how I got here?
Fate, destiny or myself?

My choices, like the Pied
Piper luring me with
song, bid me to come here.
But what would I change?
What could I change?

Nothing–no real choice–
just following the music,
acting and reacting
to the song of society
the only way I could.

Now the true choice–
forgiveness for the hurts;
forgiveness for the wrongs;
forgiveness for myself for
my choices not being enough.
