Don't Blame Me

It wasn't my decision
I didn't have a say,
When the world became an ugly place
Night by night, and Day by day.

I was always busy
And had to work real hard,
I thought I'd left it up 
To the so called ones in charge.

No it wasn't my fault 
No one could ever blame me,
That our world is falling all apart,
And my main concern is me.

I did all I could do
Without causing myself pain,
I stayed within familiar walls
Watched it happen....rarely complained.

I never tried to make a stand
As long as I was free,
So put the guilt on someone else,
No way can you blame me.

    Not fun getting the "Blame" for perhaps the bad conscience of another. "our world is falling apart", but I think it's a global predicament and the ones higher up might be covering their butts and taking bribes? This is most likely written on a private level, Lynn, but it's happening all over. You don't seem to need to hold the blame for anything! Best wishes, MIkki

    Thank you Michelle for your comments. So much going on in the world, I just want to scream and say "look what you're doing to our beautiful world.....but who do you scream at? I appreciate you taking the time to write me. Lynn Barany

    I can understand. We just want to go about our lives and hope that the rest of the world will do the same in the same way. Unfortunately there are too many people with nothing better to do than create havoc. It's a sad scenario but it's the way the world is. Government by the people and for the people doesn't mean anything anymore. It looks like we are on our own. I'm sorry for venting but I thank you for making me think. Rockman.
