Responsibility

Responsibility is a terrible word
It’s owned but unlike money there is no rush to possess it
No loud brawling voices claiming ownership
No inherent rights are attached; in fact it’s a package on its own
It goes unwanted in a carefree world
Great mounds of the stuff are formed
But like a traveler’s car no one claims it
People run from it
And call it by other names and don’t see it for what it is
Yet they know it’s out there
Its in the lost and found in the airport
No baggage handler brings it home
For a Christmas present

I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words. See the link below for more info.
