The Key - Poem


“I am not responsible!”

I heard someone exclaim.

“For how my life is going.

I need someone to blame.”


Your choices have not been the best.

Perhaps you’ve missed the point.

You have not taken care of things,

So life is out of joint.


“Why can’t my life run smoothly;

Why don’t things just turn out?”

It’s not supposed to work that way.

You rise above the doubt.


“You’re telling me it’s all my fault?

I’m to blame, just me?”

I think you’ve finally got it.

You’ve finally found the key!
