The One at Fault

is life

is the father that never beat me

is the friend that didn’t betray me

is the mother that always loved me

and the teacher that believed in me

the one at fault

is society

the man I didn’t vote for

that thing I can’t control

the decay I can’t stop

and the walls I can’t bring down

the one at fault

is a word I never said

an afternoon of quiet rage

an uneasy coupling

and a middling faith

the one at fault

 

is me
