My Responsibilities

Caged by the bars of responsibility
That I have erected around myself
Taken on those that do not belong
Prisoner to that which isn’t mine
I reassess what I take ownership of
For their happiness is not mine to give
Their life path not mine to choose
I am the maker of my own enclosure
Now I decide to make a change
I hold only those things that are mine
That which I am bound to
I deliver service with a smile
Resentment is neither in benefit
To the receiver nor the giver
I fulfil my purpose with joy
