I Chose To Look The Other Way

Cross Posted From: http://safetyphoenix.blogspot.com/



Because it was requested, today I am posting another poem by Don Merrill.



I Chose To Look The Other Way




I could have saved a life that day,

But I chose to look the other way.

It wasn’t that I didn’t care;

I had the time, and I was there.



But I didn’t want to seem a fool,

Or argue over a safety rule.

I… Continue

And if that's going to happen, then it's up to me.



I can't take for granted, that anyone,

Fast forward to now, the mode has been played several times, and the excitement has weakened. The hopeful start turned into a disappointing end. What do we think of The Face of…See More
