Responsibility

Responsibility is all it takes
Engage your brain before you take a swing
Succeed in this and you’ll find everything
Performs like swans on ornamental lakes
One hasty act and something precious breaks
No second chance to hear an angel sing
Surrender to your rage and you will bring
Insanity to ill conceived mistakes
Bad luck some say’s behind the worst of deeds
It isn’t luck it’s how you choose to be
Look deep inside the answer to your needs
Is not to hurt the weakest thing you see
There never can be any slight excuse
You’re never right to let your temper loose

Author notes

If someone weaker gets hurt, you cannot avoid responsibility by claiming an “act of passion” we must all ensure we aren’t in a place where losing our tempers gets out of hand.
