Actions and Consequences

Here’s a parable
For these modern times
A metaphor, analogy
Call it what you will
The point I’d like to make
Is this:

Every word you say
Every action
Every thought
Has consequences
But don’t get them both mixed up
For Actions come before
Consequences
And not the other way round.

You say I’m boring
Because I don’t want to travel
But perhaps you’ve forgotten
That the reason I don’t travel
Is because of you?

You say I’m not exciting anymore
And that’s why you strayed
But perhaps you’ve forgotten
That you strayed first
And I shut shop because of you?

You say that I’m too detached, aloof
And you can’t talk to me
But perhaps you’ve forgotten
That I’ve always been there for you
But you never felt like talking?

You say that we want different things
And we’re going different ways
But perhaps you’ve forgotten
That you were the one who decided
To seek out greener pastures?

So, before you continue
Confusing your Actions
With their Consequences
Please put your brain hat on
Switch on the light,
And take the rubbish out
Therein lies the metaphor.
