I can't blame this all on you

It would be easier
So much easier
To add this all to your account

To subtract
The sum total
From my balance
And add it all to yours

But I won't

I will not absolve you
Of the pain you caused
Or the responsibility
For the course you set my life upon

But if
After all this time
I'm still running the same track
Then I have to conclude
That it was my choices
That held my feet to this path

It would be easier
So much easier
To add all these years
And my choices
To your balance

But I won't

Because if I insist on filling
This onerous
And undignified role of
Accountant For Sins Against
Then least I can do
Is keep accurate records

And if it's blame
I'm summing for the total of
I've found that there is plenty of that
To go around

I think our capacity for wholeheartedness can never be greater than our willingness to be broken-hearted."  Brene Brown

Takes two to tango and it may not be 50/50 but you are on the nose with the plenty to go around. It is what it is and was what it was and I think you figured it out all right. ~L
