Victim to your life
You live out the consequences
Of your choices
For which you expected others
To hold the burden
And take the fall
But that didn’t happen
Yet still you expected demanded it
Failing to step up
Instead falling down
More deeply
Into your misery
Which you used as a whip
To punish those
You wounded
