I choose, the most damning admission of all,
the sea parted, to know what lay beneath,
the truth that none shall dissuade or disprove,
the bottom line, the blameless reality,
that circumstance is by our hand, alone,
and the burden ours to carry.
We squirm so vehemently,
the victim robes too much to bare,
so we try to placate the truth and blame,
and play victim to a world that simply doesn’t care,
for we contrive to win by any means and when we fall,
it could not be our aspiring fault, surely.
We choose and take responsibility for choice,
clean and simple, an inspiration of truth,
yet who accepts it, when someone else could bear the burden,
be the fall guy, the reason of our demise,
and we clean-skinned, beyond reproach,
ardent folk of aspiration and righteous thought, remain.
Responsibility is not a burden but our right,
the exhalation of our given breath,
a part of our own balance in life, like black and white,
choice and responsibility, hand in hand,
and if not realised, circumstances of imbalance plague us,
until we face acceptance of our choices.
