When things go wrong, when I’m are in pain,
There’s a sure fire way, to withdraw and get away.
If it’s all my fault, I suffer the added burdens of guilt and failure,
I should’ve known better, I’m smarter than that.
By blaming others, I can play victim and seek sympathy,
I can wallow in attention and people will make allowances.
That story goes on; the blaming becomes a habit,
I am stuck as a victim and I am miserable, unhappy.
When I take responsibility, a shift begins to happen,
I delve through my own crap and fix my misbeliefs.
I change my responses, I apologize for misunderstanding,
I maintain my boundaries, and shift back to others what is not mine.
The blame game is lame, it needs a shot in the head!
No one wins, everyone is miserable and we all stay the same.
So whilst it may not be your fault, you will have some responsibility,
And this is where the power lies, and where you can leap above buildings.
The growth through responsibility can be painful and humbling,
This is what we need to do now! to stop the world from crumbling.
Power to those who accept responsibility; Change themselves! Change the World!
They are our leaders, they create the path of renewal.
I want to change those two lines so the future is brighter,
So we can rise like the sun and shine all the lighter…
Power to us who accept responsibility: Change ourselves! Change the World!
We are the leaders, we create the path of renewal.
