Words Of Advice

I can feel your anger 
I can feel your pain
It's your fault
You didn't give us enough love

It's your fault 
you weren't hard enough
you should have made
me go to school

It's your fault
look at me now
I have no job
I'm living on the street

The words of blame
travel swiftly around the house
yet look deeper
was it my fault you didn't study

Was it my fault 
you decided to take drugs
was it my fault 
you didn't apply for those jobs

Was it my fault 
you wouldn't 
go to bed at night
fault and blame 

Solves no problem
actions speak louder than words
If I didn't give enough love
learn to cuddle and build love

If I didn't make you
go to bed
learn self discipline
and get there yourself 

there are course's to take
that will build your career 
build the skills and stop blaming me
granted I am not perfect

Yet neither are you 
lets stop laying blame
lets stop creating pain
lets decide to make a future

You can do it
you can stop taking drugs
you can stop finding fault
you can create a career

with the job 
come's the money
with the money 
come's a home

with a wage to support you
you create a life worth living 
you can become proud
stating I overcame drugs

I got a job 
I have a home
I have a family
Thanks for the words of advice
