In Grown Folks Skin

It is not okay,
To say what you wish...
About another.
Then decide from your lips,
When and what you have said...
Should be dismissed.

There are too many children,
In grown folks skin.
Believing irresponsibility,
Is alright to defend.
It isn't.
Nor is one's refusal,
To be held accountable.

It is not okay,
To say what you wish...
About another.
Then decide from your lips,
When and what you have said...
Should be dismissed.
As if feelings aren't connected to it.

There are too many children,
In grown folks skin.
Believing irresponsibility,
Is alright to defend.
It isn't.
