Art of Responsibility


What is responsibility?
Fair soul to apologize
Role that must be fulfilled
Ready to deal the consequence

When you must be responsible?
When something goes wrong
When duty calls to be done
When you face the challenge

Why you must be responsible?
Because it is your fault
Because it is your job
Because it is your risk

How you gonna be responsible?
By grudgingly admitting the mistake
By taking redemption action
By carrying the burden all by yourself

And do you with your responsibility
Sincere with what you confess?
Try to find consolation?
Or trap yourself in guilt?

So where are you when responsibility demands?
Hiding behind twisted words
Immediately place yourself in front
Or simply your nature to keep changing like weather

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
