What About My Image?
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
But you've graduated from high school.
Why is it that you desire to go back?
'I felt safe in those days.
It was easy for me not to be accountable,
And when I blamed someone else for something I did...
At least I could hide my deceit and was believed.
People are trying to make me responsible,
For my own actions.
I have 'never' done that before!
I'm not use to having fingers pointed at me.'
You know eventually that is going to happen.
I can't even blame 'them' for anything anymore.'
Just be prepared to fix everything you've done.
'Are you kidding?
Be responsible for my own actions?
Be accountable and admit my faults?
What about my image? '
