It's Not Me

Updated on January 30, 2014

Then Who Else Could It Be

I hear those words spoken to often in work

Why don't people own up to their mistakes ?

They rather blame someone else

This is a problem with young adults who think they know it all

They don't and won't listen to anyone else

When they have so much potential

To be far better than I could ever be

Learning in a world that is so advanced and ahead of my time

Yet they still lack one thing they can not find

Common sense

One that puts everything I know in proper order

So that we can help each other and all do better

Instead I see selfishness in their actions

I hear I don't care often

Each time the words our used it makes my skin crawl

With an all for me and the hell with you attitude

I am thrown back

Confused and stunned

Don't they see what they have done ?

They cut off the hand that feeds them

They crush the back that carried them

So sad

I get so annoying when they won't listen

It is beyond my control

As often as I have tried

For reasons I am not sure

Maybe it was because I was taught

To help out and that's enough

Not to question why

Then again they don't appreciate or understand

I do it because I want to not because I have to

It's the way I was taught to think

They have neither the desire or thought to know why

They wouldn't do it

If they were me

They tell me with no reservation

I am a fool

They would laugh and see humor when someone else fails

They careless of the outcome

Show little pride

Even though they have the skills

They have a drive that is unpredictable as the weather

I think they are all on the same drug

With surges of power like lightning

A force to be reckoned with

Very destructive and unforgiving

More harm than good

If only their energy could be harnessed and put to proper use

Where it could help others and be more beneficial

I scratch my head as I stand bewildered

What will the future hold

Each generation that follows

Leading the way for their children

For a better way of life

I don't hope

I pray

For better days

So be it as it may

This day comes to an end abruptly

If I was a head of hair

I would have all split ends
