KOMMONSENTSJANE – Dr. Benjamin Carson Shares Mother’s Poem, “Yourself to Blame.”

Reblogged on kommonsentsjane/blogkommonsents.

This is Dr. Carsons mother’s prescription on how to live your life to its fullest potential.

Is this the game most people play? Think about it – just look in the mirror and the truth will be exposed.

Once you recognize that person in the mirror who is really to blame – accept responsibility for yourself and get a job, and – you can then move on in life and live it to the fullest.

The poem (below) and the legacy of Dr. Benjamin Carson, Pediatric Neurosurgeon, which is by now over, should serve as an inspiration for all.  America is Beautiful and exceptional.

“Yourself to Blame.”

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 is what 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 faults in you…

You’re the captain of your ship,
So agree with the same
If you travel downward
You have yourself to blame

Author:  Mayme White Miller

Be inspired.  Look beyond the blame…
