another three word wednesday prompt

as she stood on the bridge
contemplating a life
never fully lived,
she wondered if there
was still hope for her.

would she be able to
turn this mess around,
change her world within.

she was disturbed by this,
that much was true.
but who was at fault for
her mistakes, did she do this
alone. or was there someone
to blame for all of her sadness.
alas, there was
only herself.

contemplating a life
never fully lived,
love that

It's sad that people who take responsibility for messes or life etc are generally the most innocent

It's the hardest to realize there is only ourselves to blame. But good for her for taking responsibility.

Enjoyed this -- I loved the ending -- so firm, so sure, so solid. Looking inward...we all have to do that from time to time.
