>Excuses

>Blame placed on that which is blameless
Credit given to those that are shameless
Expressive words used to tell things we’ve done
Accountability is not revered but shunned
Who authorized the lack in responsibility?
Justifying with supposed mental incapability
Interjecting that we’re all identically the same
When it’s our tongue that we should try to tame
Making excuses for every little issue
As if our excuses are supposed to soothe like tissue
Excuses given even to ourselves
Pushing down reality past where it dwells
We are products of past excuses once made
We even have excuses about the excuses we gave
Excuses as to why we can’t do what’s right
Excuses given to mask our plight
Excuses made to those we love
As if being real fits like O.J.’s glove
No explanation needed for our faults
And sometimes our talk don’t match our walk
But that’s just who we are no way to refute it
An excuse is just a lie…diluted
