Blaming Myself

by Raul1

My dad always tells me
not to talk about the past,
but I can't help it.
I used to blame myself
for my mistakes.

My parents advise me,
that I have done nothing
but I felt guilty over nothing,
for me, I was to blame.

But, this isn't the case,
I am innocent in all
of this,
it took me years to
realize it,
it was a bad habit
I wanted to get rid of it.

Writing Prompt
Write a poem about a habit you have that you'd be better off not doing. Any length or style.

In my teens years I have always felt that I did the wrong things. My parents consulted with me and told me that I've done nothing wrong. It is true that I was and am always a good person. It was my bad judgment on myself. Now I feel that I have done nothing wrong. It was just a misunderstanding on my part. I am a good person. It was a bad habit I wanted to get rid of.
