To play the blame game is easy
All the ills are dumped on another,
But that does not correct society
Nor does it birth results thereafter.
What the Bible says is this:
"Make it your ambition
To lead a quiet life,
To mind your own business,
And to work with your hands.
So that your daily life
May win the respect of outsiders
And so that you will not
Be dependent on anyone
For your daily needs."*
I reckon it's personal responsibility
That each of us should carefully consider,
To take our roles quite seriously
Whether we are son, daughter, mother or father.
It all starts in each of us
For salt always affects its surroundings
A dash of it will always cause
A saltiness to all its touchings.
Just like a birthday candle small
When lit inside a darkened room
The dark cannot affect it at all,
The light it gives defeats the gloom.
Let's mind ourselves to be the best
Whatever our circumstances
These temporary trials test
The core and grit of faith's substance.
To find in work our dignity
Our life becomes a source of light;
In quiet strength and honesty,
A will and faith to live what's right.
