I’m not sure what I have done
to be treated this way.
Everyone’s blaming me,
leaving me to stray.
It’s hard enough already-
to try and make no mistake.
But no one appreciates the effort,
as if it’s their reputation at stake?!
And most pointing out my flaws,
have fingers as crooked as can be.
They only have more experience,
with pretending to be white sheep.
I think that there’s a fine line
between sharing wisdom and ridicule.
And that some coaching the game
don’t, themselves, know the rules.
I’m learning that pleasing everyone
is only a misconstrued delusion.
And that being true to one’s self
is the only logical conclusion.
