“Just cuz”is rarely for a just cause =
like I have to wait ‘just cuz’ your late.
Of course, it could be for good reason –
someone else needed your attention.
However, had you left earlier
I would not have been surlier
I am not suggesting you’re bad;
and I certainly should not be mad.
Yes, with someone who needed you;
is truly a right path to ensue.
I struggle though with the boundary lack
and the victim be of the ‘just cuz’ tact.
I long to be the company sought –
I don’t like being the afterthought
Sincere thoughts enable the ‘just cuz’;
heart and prayer embody the ‘be-cause’.
