feelings superfluous
let me not blame myself
but look to myself
as another self
he is to blame
or take responsibility
but throw responsibility
to another self
he is responsible               you are all lazy
                                i do the work around here                                
let me dodge the bullets        you just go and play
as another victim
let me victimize
behind a shell of illness
it is to blame
it will take responsibility
I am not responsible
let me see myself
as another self

he is shooting the bullets
feelings superfluous

"let me not blame myself

Sounds like the very antithesis of self-actualized - I enjoyed this poem.  It made me think, and I went on a very detailed and wild analysis of this piece *chuckling*.  Very cool
