Accountability

by variable58

What have we done
and what will we do
will you help me
or will I hurt you
can we face the things that we've done
or are we just in this life
for intrigue or to have fun
as we sow so shall we reap
will you bring laughter
or make people weep
will you build things up
or will you tear them down
will you be a loving support
or a balloon popping clown
all that we do
must be accounted for
it's not to late
you have a choice
a responsibility
to make heaven or hell
for you and me
and that is called
accountability

hey brother! I couldn't agree with you more! you need to send this to our current mr. president! if anyone needs to start being accountable it's him, but yes, the rest of us also need to be accountable for our actions and how those actions affect other people. good write!

this is a timely piece considering the state of the union these days and how young people are being taught their feelings are more important than taking accountability for their own actions. when I was young we had a saying that actions speak louder than words. it seems today that words are all you need and damn your actions and taking accountability for them. well said!
