Responsibility


Responsibility

“Clean your room.”
“Wash the dishes.”
“Do your laundry.”
“Walk the dog.”

“Do your homework.”
“Study well.”
“Get good grades.”
“Go to college.”

“Have lots of friends.”
“Make good choices.”
“Don’t be a bully.”
“Be popular.”

“Stay loyal.”
“Save me.”
“Don’t tell anyone.”
“I don’t know what to do.”

“I’m fine. I fell.”
“They didn’t mean it.”
“Don’t say anything.”
“It didn’t hurt.”

“Don’t be a prude.”
“Don’t be a slut.”
“You were asking for it.”
“It’s not a big deal.”

“Never forget.”
“Always forgive.”
“Grow from it.”
“Look on the bright side.”

What if I want to?
What if I don’t?
What if I want to?
What if I can’t?
