Prompt 7 – New Age Angst

New age angst in a time
When things go so badly that
There’s not even someone to blame
Because the only one you can blame
Is yourself

Is it not your fault that you cannot do
As others around you can do?
That it is obviously not so easy
To escape the voice
In your head

Telling you that it is
Because you are dysfunctional
Because you are wrong
Because you are not enough
Because you are not amounting to

Expectations I have set for you
Only because I care
You know very well I only want so much
Because I love you so much
Please understand

It is not your fault
But still you must blame yourself
Because it is your nature
Because it is what the voice tells you
I say to you

When you cannot understand
What I mean.
