And ... Do You Feel Shame

September 23, 2017

And…

 

Do you feel shame

Responsibility

Accountability

Or humility

You take the steps of

Victim gone wrong

Playing the song

Not being strong

Drinking and swerving

Drunk while you’re curving

And…

Do you take Blame

For the hit and run

Under the gun

Like a slingshot from hell

Down the bank she fell

Twisted and broke

Screaming in pain

Do you take Blame

Do you feel Shame

Responsibility

Accountability

Or Humility

Of actions gone wrong

Of setting them right

Without blinding your sight

With no running away

Stand up to be counted

Stand up to accept

The responsibility

The accountability

Of your actions that night

Instead of hiding in fright

Behind the coats of your peers

Behind the glasses of beer

Behind the whiskey glass label

Behind the damn lawyer table

Set yourself free

To accept responsibility

Accountability and humility

And

Do you feel Shame?
