Yourself To Blame - a poem liked by Dr. Ben Carson getting some attention

Yourself To Blame by Mayme White Miller

If things go bad for you

And make you a bit ashamed,

Often you will find out that

You have yourself to blame.... 


Swiftly we ran to mischief

And then the bad luck came

Why do we fault others?

We have ourselves to blame….

Whatever happens to us,

Here are the three words we say,

“Had it not been for so-and-so

Things wouldn’t have gone that way”


And if you are short of friends,

I’ll tell you what to do

Make an examination,

You’ll find the fault’s in you

You’re the captain of your ship

So agree with the same

If you travel downwar

You have yourself to blame…
