No Excuse

Trees & Fog - Aliza Abusch-Magder - jGirls+ Magazine

There is no excuse
For the voices in my head
For the songs running through my veins
For the stories that I write

There is no excuse
For the problems I create
For the words that I may say
For the lives that I may break

There is no excuse
For the fighting I may bring
For the speeches I may give
For the laughing I may drown

There is no excuse
For the people, and what they hear
For the lives that I may touch
For the crying that may come
But yet,
We find excuses for it all
