Responsibility and Rescue

"Give me your car keys, but don't tell me what to do."
This has been the demand of teenagers, more than a few.
We treat Our Creator and communities the same way,
Expecting rescue, after not giving them a say.
How often are we able to enter another's hell
Without ending up destroyed, as well?

We must have many others to hold onto us
Before we attempt rescue of those we can't trust
To adhere to the values the team has defined;
Only then can we carry the fallen as we climb
Out of the pit of stubborn individuality,
Back to the partnerships in which we were meant to be.

  1. Even in cultures based on strong family/community ideas,(at least the ones I've observed) teens are the same. They want the keys to the car with no restrictions! ☻
