You Have Yourself to Blame

 By Victor Odongo

If things go bad for you

And make you a bit ashamed

Often you will find out that


Swiftly we run to mischief

And the bad luck came

Why do we fault others?

We have ourselves to blame


Whatever happens to us,

Here are the words we say

“Had it not been so-and-so

Things wouldn’t have gone this way”


And if you are short of friends,

I tell you what to do

Make an examination

You’ll find the fault in you…


You are the captain of your ship

So agree with some

If you travel downwards,

You have yourself to blame
