The Victim

The 50 year old poet

I am taking a walk

down memory lane

there are answers to

some questions

I need to ascertain.

I have to look at things

from a different angle,

there are threads of truth

I need to untangle.

It might be possible

I am not to fault

for my situation

just an innocent victim

of a character assassination.

I need to find who

has benefitted

from my woe,

who was the instigator

who returned to the shadows

to watch from a distance

as his plan came to fruition

while I was the one

left under suspicion.

It will be hard

to find out the truth,

especially with me

being an unqualified sleuth.

But I know

I won’t give up trying

for it’s my only option,

I’ve done my share of crying.
