Holding yourself to account

You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.

Too often we leave things to chance

We see only what we want to see

Blinded by our own ignorance.

We continue to blame circumstance

We blame everything and everyone else,

But rarely do we blame ourselves.

We call it bad luck or God’s will.

And perhaps sometimes that’s true

But perhaps other times, it’s solely on us.

In failing to learn the lessons

In breaking the rules that were designed to protect us

And turning away those sent to embrace us.

Because with every step, you choose the direction.

Whether to walk towards;

or to walk away.

So perhaps it’s best to wise up

Open your eyes

And start getting your shit together.

Because if you don’t hold your self to account

You can be absolutely guaranteed,

That sooner or later

Life surely will.
