repressed





it wasn't our fault
the two of us
we followed the rules
obeyed our elders
said our prayers

it wasn't our fault
the pair of us
we tried to forget
the torture
of the every day

it wasn't our fault
childhood duplicity
no one
picked us up
and ran

it wasn't our fault

  1. tina, this is very heavy, as in hard to lift - the self-forgiveness feels hollow, like the repetition is trying to convince the self

  2. Thanks for stopping by friend. I think it is hollow.
