The fault is entirely my own
My influence troubling you even when you're alone
the fault lies entirely with me
don't you understand, can't you see
I'm full of anger and negativity
A blackness-a darkness that spreads
It infects those around me like a poison-rendering logic dead
I make decisions, I think of only me, not you
Or them and then like an acidic snowball thrown to-
A cataclysmic catastrophe erupts
Like a volcano spewing its deadly lava and smoke
Until we all wither and choke
The fault is entirely my own
Entirely my own...

    Lots to think about here. It is good to take responsibility for actions but not to be too hard on ourselves! I speak for myself-I often do that. Always, Laura
