Victims

we are all
victims
of misfortune.

every day provides
an opportunity
to find a way
to not take
responsibility
for ourselves.

things would be
better
if only
he would have done...
this.

or she would have done...
that.

we make ourselves
the victim
and then we
build a wall
of righteousness
around us
to keep out
guilt
and shame
and loss.

but the wall
is made
of glass
everyone can see
right in
they see us
and they know
the truth.

but we close
our eyes
to all of that
because
it feels safer
to be
the victim
