I relize now
That I was simply the scapegoat
In the disaster
that I was caught up in
It all began so long ago
and this disaster that I speak of
Is over and dealt with
But forever will live on
In my life
In my mind, body, and soul
and forever my life has been changed..
For better or worse
I cannot say
For can't you see?
I'm the apperent problem here
I always have been
but I never asked for this
I never wanted this
Yet here I am...
With these tears steaming down my cheeks...
and crys so loud but are mute to those who surround me..
Here I am
Somewhere... I never ask to be
Yet I still remain the problem...
Another good poem jackie, you have a way of letting the reader know that you have been through some serious [censored] in your life, your style is improving the more you write, keep it up, I really like your work, Dean
An excellent poem, indeed. Are you studying to be a psychologist? Just curious, since your taking family living class. But, i don't know if this is what your looking for or not. Your poem was entitled escape goat. I'm pretty sure why you named the poem that. But the word i think you were looking for is ScapeGoat. The Scapegoat in a situation, is the one that takes all of the blame. Yes, you did use the term right. But it's only spelled wrong. I too have been the scapegoat in a relationship. So i think i may know how you feel. Well written. Write on.
this is a emotional poem, it touches my heart for i know i am a ugly duck, i to never wanted to be one bu t maybe this what is known as destiny.
all the lines looks so much natural, looks like just flowing out of your heart. this is a world where people, stand on you to look tall, hug you to show others that they are generous, they blame their mistakes on you. Here rules changes according to their needs, what they say is truth and their ignorance is false.
Its so painful that when you cry world tends be dead, they only respons to shouts for they don't want disturbance. It strange why they choose to be irresponsible towards others.
you are a good poet, its easy to relate to your poem, thses are simple but deep.
