For My Lot - Poem by Francis Duggan

For my lot in life my own self i do blame
There is none other i can name
Good judgement is a thing I've not shown
And all of my mistakes are my own.

'Tis said for our mistakes of today
That tomorrow we will have to pay
And no fool like an old fool they say
That's life it is always that way.

For your woes some scapegoat is not hard to find
But to yourself you can be more kind
Than hiding in your self deceit
And by like some say copping it sweet.

The deals we have with others our choice
And for our mistakes we must pay the price
And for every mistake i have made
The price for my poor judgement I've paid.
