How easily

How easily we give away
responsibility,
and hand to others power,
of all that we may be;
the doctor and the priest,
the politician too,
the lawyer and the therapist
who have their
own small truth.
So safe the place wherein
we sit, when others will
decide, and nothing can
be blamed on us; no fault
will be applied.
We’d rather
die than have to hold
responsibility, and that is
just what happens when
we fear to be free.
