It is too hard,
why should I try?
to go that extra mile,
when the opportunity will fly on by.
There is too big of a cost,
why should I leap?
what if we end up lost?
and the devil has my soul to keep.
Tell yourself these words everyday,
and life passes you by,
and you sit and play.
Let these words sit in your head,
as you sit alone,
lying in your bed.
But there are others who will not be like you,
others who are like lions,
the kings to break out of this zoo.
There are others who are not like you,
they say I can when they should not,
and do not give it a second thought.
Those are the men who will stand atop a mountain,
looking down upon you,
and pissing in your drinking fountain.
Those are the men who will succeed because they believed,
while you sat and gave every excuse you could bleed.

And excuses it brings.
Elizabeth Rix

I wish
It were Christmas 
Because I love the frenzy
And excuses it brings.

It's a beautiful 
Excuse to not do 
The rubbish things 
In life that we spend 
Our lives doing.

The fairy lights 
Entwined in the trees
Cross continents 
With the buzz
of electricity.

I wish it were 
Christmas because
It brings the beautiful 
Excuse to love
Extravagantly. 

Just as we love
The icy daisies
Of spring I love
The warm branches 
Of bare Christmas Trees

I wish it were Christmas
Because I want to 
Hang the rosewood
Baubles round 
And see the glitter of sequin
Bunting strung happily
About the bedrooms.

I love the beautiful 
Excuses brought
In the gifts bought 
And how love is sieved 
Through in the snow.

I miss christmas ok!

And what story are you going to give me?

I'm not,
Giving anything,
Including stories,
Including excuses,
This choice that isn't yours to make

Excuses are like assholes
everybody's got one
and if you don't
then that's
very
very
weird

yeah it's silly, so sue me
With the excuses and "I’m sorry”s

I’m done with the disappointment
With the heartache and tears
I’m done with the promises
Always postponed, never fulfilled

I'm finished with the "I love you"s
With the confusion between truths and sweet nothings
I’m spent with the let downs
With the excuses and "I’m sorry”s

I say I am finished with the romance
With the kisses and heartbreaks
Yet my every wish it to have such
To be wrapped in a lovers arms; to be loved

I say I am done with the disappointment
With the heartache and the tears
But I have yet to give it up
Nor do I honestly want to.

they are all excuses I use every single day

" i'm just tired,"
" its been a long day,"
"i'm sick,"
" i'm stressed,"
they are all excuses I use every single day

one day,
people will look past my excuses,
then, what will I say?

i'm not tired, i'm depressed
it hasn't been a long day, its been an endless one
i'm not sick, i'm just dying inside

when will the excuses end?
when can I stop lying?
I've already stopped fighting

you can make excuses for almost everything
but not when your dead

I threw excuses at myself like daggers around ladies in
Max Alexander

I picked up smoking when I was 16 because I could.
I threw excuses at myself like daggers around ladies in circus sideshow acts.
“I enjoy so few things in life, I might as well let myself have a damn cigarette.”
I told myself they were excuses, at least.
They weren’t.

I use "being a writer" as an excuse

to drink alone

far too often.

I've got piles of excuses
Mike Hauser

I've got piles of excuses
Just waiting in line
Of my favorite to use
I've perfected with time

From I had no idea
To the suns in my eyes
It's my allergies
That make it look like I cry

Or that dog of yours
Made all this mess
And I'd love to go out
If I wasn't already undressed

I used to do that
Before I threw out my back
I'd find your jokes funny
If I hadn't run out of laughs

I'd visit more often
If I had more time
These excuses are real
I swear I'm not lying

Would have done something
If that I had seen
Seems the older I get
The more my eyesight fails me

These are just a few of the excuses
Over the years I have saved
Never know when I'll need them
For a good excuse to be made

I guess executives like people major in excuses.

I guess executives like people major in excuses.
Everytime something drastic happens.
We know the comment or generalization is coming.

We know when gas prices arises.
That an excuse is coming our way.
Do they think we were born yesterday.

If a forest fire happens.
If rain never comes.
We know prices of fruit will be like a track runner.
Excuses.
Some legit.
Some just given.

We constantly aware of that late employee.
Where you're just waiting to hear that one news.

Traffic was bad.
Or something else given to cover up being late.
Excuses.
Some confirmed.
Others unconfirmed.

A honest days work for your boss.
Just to hear them say get out.
Because we filing bankruptcy's today.
Excuses.
We all can't say we hadn't used one.
Because we are only human.

Late for a date.
You better have a good reason.
And, we complain about the lateness of the seasons

Excuses.
Something we never get use too.
