Shame & Blame

by Eric Chaet

Instead of shame, I readily confess
I’ve done what no one should have done
& thereby made wicked messes
others had to deal with—but, I pray
I do so less & less, each day, amen.

As for blame, I don’t have time:
my life will end I don’t know when
& I’m not the one I should be yet
& my work is far from done, amen.
