Finding someone to blame

He blamed me
for someone else’s mistake.
I couldn’t help him
in the way he wanted.

He eluded to me doing something
I wasn’t authorized to do.
I tried to help him in a different way
but he was more intent on being upset.
He left.

He expected me to do my job
and someone’s too.
I have no interest in appeasing
someone who is disrespectful.
I have no delight
in condoning bad behavior.

I am strong enough
to take responsibility
for my own mistakes,
but I am always striving
for balance and fairness.

What happened today
was not fair to me
but it won’t deter my resilience.
I will always pursue excellence.

How do I explain
the error of another
to someone who is convinced
it was my fault?

It begs to question,
did he really want to be helped,
or was he just
in the mood to be angry?
Perhaps be was angry
for an entirely different reason
and took his frustration out on me.

Perhaps he was just a ‘trial’
sent to test me
on an otherwise easy day.
I stood my ground and kept my cool.
In the end it was a great day!
