So i admit i got lost among emotions
and i
repent..the absence of devotion
and i have spent the 19 years
living within reason..thriving and leaving
im a watcher..i live in wait
proving and accusing
everyone of making..all my honest mistakes

Your poem makes you think..and haven't we all blamed others for are own mistakes..honest ones or not.

jackal, this is SO great...and so typically you...your unique talent for speaking SO much emotion in so few powerful words...
I love the irony and confession in this...
very well written.
take care,

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

***Jackel,
Wow, this really made me think.
A fantastic poem, so much said in a short space of time.        
Congratulations.
