you're no victim

you're no victim

A Poem by linda m. crate
"

Because sometimes the wrong people scream wolf.

"
you're no victim 
i'm not always the victim,
but neither are you
so stop
blaming everyone but yourself
for your actions;
we all make mistakes and we
all have failures
listed on 
the chapters of our lives�"
we can't just wallow in the grief and
agony without hope of
endurance;
i can't understand why you sit there
thinking that you're so much
more important than
everyone else�"
did someone make you a god when i wasn't
looking because last time i checked
the earth revolved around the
sun, old friend, not you;
you said that we should be strangers,
but you forget that we have
a history
strangers don't share histories with anyone
they're just that face in the crowd
you remember some of the 
details of, 
but not the whole;
and i remember everything of you
every piece of poison
you tried to infect me with.
