On taking responsibility

Far from being a ball and chain
Owning up is liberty
Freedom
Freedom to determine next steps
Freedom to make an assertion
To make a judgement call
To make things right.
Responsibility means raising your hand
To be the one to call
No matter how things turn out
For better or for worse.
Hiding from it only means
Someone else will finish the story on your behalf
And who knows,
They may just tell the story
As though you were never there.
Own your stuff.
