I used to think it wasnt me

that it was them

its hard to blame yourself

for things you see others do

so Id sit back and think “OK

its not me, its them”

as it turns out itd be everyone

all of them Id have to blame

for me and my failings, and now

I know it isnt them, its me

Im the problem

Im the reason the lunchroom

goes silent

Im the reason the commute

has no words


its me

I know that now


and now,



Me or Not Me
